I Made it into DMOZ
 
I didn't make it into being featured by Telnic, but I submitted it to DMOZ a while ago
and finally got added ¬.¬ I'm pretty happy as you can imagine :p

http://www.dmoz.org/Society/People/F...ersonal_Pages/

http://www.dmoz.org/search?q=furrie.tel

http://furrie.tel

So in conclusion I win teh Internets! as they say..... & now I have more reason to pay this up for 10 years, which is max at DM. 

Category /Society/People/Furry/Personal_Pages/ which is what Telnic originally developed them for personal contact profiles.

Now I think I meet most of the requirements to be featured by Telnic, and have submitted to be featured & of course rejected which I'm not as bothered about now as I'm in DMOZ

That's great news, Congrats Bunjie,
I'm still waiting for my entry.

What it gives if somebody is added to DMOZ?

Cees11-08-2010 07:05 PM




A box of Chocolates
Plus a bunch of other stuff that will help with your ranking, it's also a little prestigious as not everyone will be accepted, I'm sure someone else on the forum will explain in more technical terms, in a mean time I hope Bunjie enjoys his chocolates.

Congratulations Bunjie - that will certainly give encouragement to others to submit their personal Dot Tel site tohttp://www.dmoz.org

For those unfamiliar with the benefits and procedure for DMOZ.org submission, I have put together some info athttp://telnic.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1569

Congrats Bunjie, quite an achievment. However, not sure of relevance of dmoz today, seems to me there are more bad things than good written about them today - but still considered a good link to have, can't wait for my free box of chocolates cees.:)

Bunjie11-09-2010 03:15 PM




Thanks all, I think http://blekko.com is the evolution (3 years in the making) of DMOZ, and we'll likely see the same effect that DMOZ used to have on webmasters but towards individuals adding their website to certain category's.

Of course the most important ones being listed under http://blekko.com/user/blekko

Still if DMOZ was to die tomorrow because of http://blekko.com or other such things, it's always good to be the last one accepted if even for a short while. But I'm sure more are still being added DMOZ will live on.

Being in an obscure category likely worked for me as did having Find The Furry Fandom inSL™. link at the top of sub domain which looks kinda the same when clicked on as my profile does, so it probably made the editor decide it was interesting enough to be added.

And like you said some see it as some kinda prize, I'm guessing the same will happen with http://blekko.com/user/blekko perhaps this is why they evolved DMOZ into a search engine that you categorize stuff yourself, because power was in the hands of a few?

I have noticed sites talking about corrupt editors and how to buy them off, but I don't believe that I know people online always have beefs with others.

So yea Blekko said they didn't want to do all the tagging so I guess that's due to the fact they made DMOZ I believe, and have watched it devolve into some prize to fight over with editors.

Congratulations, Bunjie!

I've submitted several of my websites to DMOZ. The only one I've had accepted is the company I started as a university student,ChronoWake, currently listed at http://www.dmoz.org/Science/Technolo..._and_Services/

Well done.
I have made several attempts to have my .tel directories listed, but no luck so far.

that is the most ever hated theme at dmoz



due to that, google and many search engines have dropped the weightage they used to give earlier[/size]

Really? That's news to me! Do you have a link from Google that confirms this?

Mike, this is about the best article I've seen, with quote from Google's Matt Cutts. http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/20...lace-in-search

There's a lot of negative dmoz articles, which do seem to say dmoz is corrupt and no longer used by search engines, but a link from dmoz still has lots of juice.

Googles algorithm changes all the time as we know, but all things being equal a link is a link, some links are more equal than others.

Have you ever used dmoz to find a web site other than your own, it's a bit outdated, a lot of the most popular sites aren't listed, and a lot of the listed sites, no longer exist, add to that the aol search it uses and you'll see why it's no longer considered vital in search engine optimisation.

Unless your's an established directory you wont get a chance in there. Because of growing web directories (which are pretty much with junk links and less of quality) these are given much less importance. They like to list an actual website rather than some directory with all links..

Once Dmoz listing had a high weightage but it's no longer the same..If a highly popular webdirectory loose it's influence then think about those crappy web directories in general.

Not many successful directories or search engines reveal their strategies, all they say is we accept quality.
Lastly Google uses Dmoz data for it's directory and not the other way.[/size]
