    Hello Gang,

    After 7 long months we finally got added to the DMOZ.

    How long do you think it will take before we see the benefits. And quite frankly, what the heck are the benefits of a DMOZ listing? The jury seems to be out on that one.

    Thanks,

    Frank

    Congrats Frank!

    The 1 benefit that I have seen to a DMOZ listing is that a lot of those PPC/PPS service programs pick up feed that displays alot of DMOZ listings in their lists. Gives link exposure and added click throughs. As far as traffic, well not tons but the traffic is a bonus and DMOZ sometimes has some great listing discoveries.

    The benefits are these:

    i) PR boost due to Dmoz listing.
    ii) PR boost due to Google directory listing
    iii) Keyword matching between search terms used on homepage and Dmoz title/description gives a ranking boost in Google.
    iv) Dmoz is spidered very regularly by all the search engines, so it should keep you listed with AV, Lycos and Inktomi and ensure that all pages are spidered often.

    If you haven't already done so, you should also be looking to get into these directories:

    www.joeant.com
    www.goguides.org
    www.gimpsy.com

    You won't see much traffic from them, but these are also crawled by the major search engines every couple of days and are worthwhile links to have.

    Hey... wait a second. Our homepage isn't the page best optimized for the various keywords we're targeting.

    Will our DMOZ listing just benefit us in relation to our homepage, or will it expand the opportunity for our entire site to be spidered/crawled/indexed (not sure of the correct terminology here)???

    Oh wait... Mr. Mark... I just digested the tail end of your point iv)

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>so it should keep you listed with AV, Lycos and Inktomi and ensure that all pages are spidered often.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    So all of our pages should benefit and our "special" pages should get the appropriate boost, too. Right???

    Thanks for the directory tips Marky... I'll submit there.

    Thanks,

    Frank
