    What's the latest on DMOZ?

    Hi folks. I'm on that message board that lets you ask about the status of your site in DMOZ, but they've changed their policy from pinging them once a month to pinging them once every SIX MONTHS! Am I SHOUTING? Is DMOZ dying? If so, I would think its relevance will drop soon. Any experts here who know what the deal is with DMOZ?

    Since it is a human edited directory it takes a ... long while for them to post your site. Approx a year.

    Dying out?? No way.. Google is using DMOZ as their main resource for their Google Local search.

    DMOZ main page has a PR9. It is here to stay as long as the Internet exists. What other Direcotory of this magnitute offers free submission and insertion?

    I don't think DMOZ is dying but even if it is human edited. It's been 2 years that I am trying to get some websites in, and nothing happened. I resubmit each website every 6 months to be placed at the back of the pile of submissions.

    Don't know what's going on but it does not reflect something good.

    But is that useful?

    It's hard to imagine, if websites are waiting 1 to 2 years, that what's in DMOZ is up-to-date or state-of-the-art.

    Hmm... If your read their rules, does it not say that if you submit the same site more than once, it will not get listed or something?

    Yes, it is exact if you submit the same site twice within 6 weeks.

    I know that it takes between 3 to 6 months to get listed, so I resubmitted those site every 6 months to be sure not to double submit.
