    Hi there!

    Last year when I was new to all this, I submitted an affiliate site to DMOZ. It was rejected.

    Recently, I hired someone to help me make a dating/personals site. It is not an affiliate site.

    Is there a chance that DMOZ will automatically assume it is an affiliate site because there is record that I submitted an affiliate site in the past?

    Would it be a good or bad idea to let someone else (like the person helping me with programming) submit the site to DMOZ?

    Thank you all for your help!

    Dynamoo, I sent you a PM about the site. Thanks!

    The editor will not see your record of past submissions (unless you are a big time spammer). They only see if the url that you are now submitting has been submitted in the past.

    My website is purely an affiliate based website. I have thousands of affiliate links. I have several pages in DMOZ. Every page I have submitted has gone in there

    Frankly, I wouldn't admit that in public, especially if your mall site is 'known', there's lotsa dmoz editors around here who'll be happy to remove your site for you...lol

    Yes it does depend mostly upon the editor for the category you submit to, and whether the category is policed by senior editors.

    I once had a page included (I had not even submitted it) that was little more than just affiliate banners with virtually no text content at all. That one got excluded at just about the same time a new editor took over that category. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    If you do a little exploring, you may find many DMOZ categories that are rife with affiliate sites.

    Some editors will reject pages for having ONE affiliate link.
