According to the dmoz.org:
The Open Directory Project is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. It is constructed and maintained by a vast, global community of volunteer editors.
For those unfamiliar with dmoz, it used to be a lively project – the wiki of search engines where folks could categorize sites and announce their arrival to the net. Of recent, though, I’ve submitted several of my sites on several occasions utilizing their submission process. Months later, my sites are still not posted anywhere within dmoz’s database.
A couple questions:
- Does anyone actually utilize this data?
- Is anyone still actually editing this data?
- Does this data have any impact on Google, Yahoo, or Live searches?
My guess is that it’s simply not worth it anymore to work on or with dmoz. Your opinion?
