View Full Version : DMOZ listing

11-04-2003, 02:52 AM
My site peaceandhealing.com just got listed into the Health/Mental Health cateogry at DMOZ.

It took exactly 2 months (give or take 1 day).

Pretty quick. The new resource-zone.com is very useful.

It totally depends how active the editor of the cat is.

I've been an editor there for a while now and edit a few categories. I think the setup is pretty poor really. There's a blatant lack of editors and yet they're so reluctant to give out new editor rights. It's no wonder there's such a backlog. There's simply not enough people to process them.

I've gotten listings in 12 hours before (multiple ones too).

On the same token my literature site's homepage hasn't managed to be listed in 3 or 4 years.

I've been appling to the same category every month for 14 months and I haven't got in... No new sites have... I tried complaining but no one listened...

I agree with Chromate about DMOZ.
It is hard to get into be an editor and even hard to get new cats. even though there is plenty that need editiing.

I try to get my edits out within a couple of days.
DMOZ public side had some hiccups for a while and even though your editor may have listed you straight away, it may have taken some time to show up on the public side.

I managed to only get 2 sites in ever. One of them they totally messed up my decsription... it wasn't even close...

chris how did you manage to get 280+ listings for the literature site.

11-30-2003, 02:33 AM
Yeah, did you add them all individually?

Submitting for a couple years.

Can you add folders to DMOZ?

Say like...

A folder is still a URL. So yes.

Finally got listed in the DMOZ. Took me about four months.
