DMOZ, the most important directory - Blogger Tips and Tricks got listed even without submitting

Today, I received an email from a DMOZ editor, informing me that he found this blog informative have listed it in the most important directory and the most difficult one to get listed - DMOZ (Open Directory Project). You can find my blog listed here: Computers: Internet: FAQs: Help and Tutorials. And I didn't even submit my blog to the directory! (I have actually wanted to submit a long time ago, but I couldn't decide on what category to place it in. For submission to DMOZ, choosing the right category is important). I indeed feel greatly honored.

The editor also inform me that many bloggers do not know about the basics of submission to DMOZ (Open Directory Project) and pointed me to a site providing tips for getting listed in the DMOZ Directory (Open Directory Project. Google uses the DMOZ listing and has a similar directory called Google Directory and an examination of the two directories showed that it has the same categories, but arranged in different order.

You can find tips at Tips for getting site listed in Google Directory on getting faster approval of listing. Surf over there and read the useful tips before you try to submit your site to the most important directory.

I do feel I deserve it. Just refer to the notes of appreciation and thanks I have compiled at Compilation of comments in Blogger and emails received (click BACK button to get back to this page).

  5. I am glad you know about the DMOZ, it is one of the most credible directories on the web. I feel very honored to be a category editor, and even though its a volunteer position, I know that the other editors take the same responsibility in only including the best sites (and now I know from your post, blogs) for our users. Congratulations, you can be very proud of yourself! girlfriday@www.research-resource.com

  10. I often come here to read and learn. You are a very good tutorial, although English isn´t my first language

    I am DMOZ listed too, and I don´t know when, and I don´t know how it was done.

  11. Mr. Chen,
    Because of your excellent post, I registered with both DMOZ and Google as you suggested. I mentioned this information in my blog this morning (7/16/07)and suggested to my blogging friends they follow suit. Good information on your site, as always.

  17. For the last 5 years I have been trying to get my site http://www.eugenef.com listed. It is simply impossible. I have tried different directories and so fourth. Still no luck. Now I am trying to submit my other site: http://www.eugenefeygin.com and still nothing. Is there any chance you can help me please? I am now a college student trying to survive of my website and the DMOZ network has yet to be kind to me. I have tried the deepest directories to be as precise as possible, and still nothing. My site deals with desktop wallpaper. Please I am begging for help! I have looked at all the documentation out there and am i doing something wrong??

  19. Hi Master K,

    Thanks. BTW the blog URL you left in your signature line is not active (clickable and will not be followed by search engines robots (crawlers) and is of no use to you and not convenient for others. I think you should read

    Make active (clickable) links in posts and comments

    Increase link popularity and PageRank by removing "nofollow" attribute for comments

  21. Hi Eugene,

    Sorry about responding so late, but reasons given at Why your comments and emails are not getting prompt response: Apologies.

    Regarding getting into DMOZ, publish good content and they will list your blog. Nothing and no one else can help.

    Regarding earning money, why don't you try joining those groups in my signature line. At the moment, we require a blog with PageRank of 3 and above. However, hopefully we will get more to participate and maybe a less stringent condition may apply.

  34. Ah motorcyle enthusiast. I too ride a scooter not too long ago till my son gave that scooter away to stop me riding. Had a few close calls and glad I am still in one piece and able to continue blogging. Wonder if this Motorcycle safety tip which have a link to Motorcycle safety tip - keep to the side of the road as far as possibe which have a horror video of a motorcyclist squashed to pulp by a huge truck. Hope you are not too macho and remember to keep safe.

  39. The fastest way is to get someone with a blog/s/website/s, especially if they have high pagerank, to put an active link to your blog.

  40. Peter,
    Great info. I'm been working through these tips and I think it's helping! I'm listed now, just not very "preferred" in queries. But I'm sure some of that will just take time!
