Visitors: 403

It sometimes not very easy to get a website listed in DMOZ, although it helps in achieving higher search engine ranks especially in Google so its importance should not be neglected. Through this article I will provide guidelines on what you should do while submitting your website to this directory.

What is DMOZ? DMOZ is an important directory also known as The Open Directory Project (ODP), classified into different categories full of websites. Getting listed is free in this directory where pages are manually reviewed before inclusion.

Benefits of DMOZ listing Since page rank is a significant factor for high search engine ranks i. e. the higher the page ranks the better the chance Google finds your web page. DMOZ has a high page rank therefore it helps a website page rank value leap to higher levels. Huge number of websites is in queue for editor’s review; therefore it takes a long time to see listing results due to limited editors for each category. We ask ourselves sometimes why our website is rejected by editors, what has gone wrong when everything done seems so right.

In order to know that the delay is not your fault, concentrate on submitting website in the most appropriate category because submission in different category from what your website talks about will lead your website to be improper place for review, what happens next is the editor transfers it to somebody else & the process goes on until the it reaches its category which might take very long time. Also sites with unique quality content are included therefore you should put emphasis on placing text content with relevant keywords otherwise site could be subject to rejection. Rejection of a website could sometimes not be notified, to know whether your website is accepted or not, check by typing URL address & see results. DMOZ editors are always seeking out useful websites for review so once the above guidelines are followed properly this means you have done your best, so leave the rest to them.
