    Google Directory update?

    I happened to search Google for "Casino Review Pages" to see where I was ('bout 8th), and I noticed the directory link for the Google directory (the section I'm in on DMOZ), so had a look at the directory section, but I'm not in the Google one....

    Mid update? Or wishful thinking?

    Google updates their DMOZ data only sporadically now -- probably because DMOZ has problems making updated dumps available.

    Yeah I know they havent done it for ages, which is why I was surprised when the link came up under my site. Thought they might be mid update or something? How else could they link my site with that category?

    His uses a direct feed, not a data dump.

    DMOZ *had* some problems with the data dumps early last year, but there have been no problems with them in the last 6-9 months. So the fault is on Google for the lack of updates...

    Hmmm, just noticed a strange referrance in the log, and checked it out, then went on to find this . I appear in a Google Directory search, but dont show in the directory section! Very strange.
