Tips for getting site listed in Google Directory

Google Directory (which uses listings of Dmoz the largest Human Edited web directory on the internet). Open Directory Project is basically from the Netscape. Google Directory uses Dmoz’s listings and then refines through its own technology. You would be in benefit if you have your site listed in Google Directory not because of Page Rank or Traffic jump but your site would also have a higher status in the web. Infact everyday thousands of bloggers submit their site. Getting into dmoz is not easy but also not impossible.

What I have learnt from my 10 day experience is that Due to large volume of applications everyday, dmoz editors review your site in a hurry. They might not be visiting your site in that depth. Here are few tips that will definitely increase your chances of getting into dmoz.

As said in dmoz guidelines, submit to the deepest sub category you know where your site suits. For eg, My site should be listed at Computers/Internet/On_the_Web/Weblogs/FAQs,_Help_and_Tutorials/
This will make your reviewing process quick. Although editors have an option to transfer a site to another sub category, but they generally don’t do that.

Editors visit your site’s front page only (in most cases). What they will be observing is your layout and content.

I am not permitted to disclose a blog which was deserving a place in my category but it wasn’t listed because it was not well organized. Basically all blogger and wordpress blogs have good layouts, so you shouldn’t be experimenting much. I’ll prefer you force your visitors to scroll vertically instead forcing them to scroll horizontally. Its not that your theme is attractive, it should be that your links are well built up and tested.

Suppose you own a blog. Don’t put rubbish items in your posts totally off topic. They may be like that I am planning to shift or anything else. Post only what your visitors want to read.
P.S. you can have a status box like mine for such things [see left sidebar]

You can have a look on other sites listed where you think your site should be listed and then compare

Do not flood your page with affiliate links. Editors take this very seriously.

While giving your site’s description, do not use short forms of words like info, tech etc. Editors generally do not accept such applications because it makes it different for users of other tongues to get them translated.

A dmoz listing update takes time. It may vary from one minute to one year depending on editor. So if you want to check the status of your application { whether still under review, accepted or rejected }, you can visit dmoz resource zone.

  8. Much has been discussed about Identity Theft, user ID's and Passwords stolen or hacked, credit cards being used without the owners knowledge and so on. Now there is a safe way of protecting your passwords and identity online from being copied, stolen and hacked by keyboard trojans, using your biometric fingerprint and face recognition, and even voice, to log on to web sites. By simply scanning your finger or face or voice you can log on to a web site, log on to your computer, and even encrypt files and folders. No more worrying about who might hack into your online accounts or even your email. No more remembering passwords or using the same passwords on many sites. This is an exciting new innovation from myBiodentity and they have about fourteen products that are enabled with biometrics including email encryption, password manager, virtual disk, and many more.

  23. The change came about when Breitling Watches , the founder's son, created the first wristwatch chronograph in the world. Chronomat B01 next technological breakthrough pushed itself to the center stage of major Air Forces around the world. That was its independent chronograph push piece invented in 1923. While the previous chronograph was performed by the winding-crown, the new feature introduced a return to zero function and start function by just one push of the crown. In 1934, cumulative timer function was also added, just as what pilots needed when flying their planes.This impressive advance in chronograph mastery caught the attention of the Royal Air Force and the American Air Forces, and thus Chronomat Evolution had been appointed as their official wristwatch suppliers since 1936.

  30. I feel that this information is quite old and you do not have to be on DMOZ to insure your g listings. Even stubleupon would probably work better as it is easy to open an account and stubleupon when DMOZ acceptance is as tough as anything.
