|The Open Directory Project is the largest, most comprehensive human-edited directory of the Web. Over the past year, many have wondered about the status of the directory. We have posted about the status of DMOZ last winter when they were not accepting new submissions to the human-edited directory.
So it was interesting to see the release of the DMOZ Blog. The blog will act as the official resource for news, insights and updates about the Open Directory Project. According to the first official blog post, DMOZ is not dead.
Thousands of new sites are added and updated every week, and we continue to receive hundreds of editor applications and suggested sites every day.The blog will act as a feedback mechanism for users to:
I know one thing that I would like to know and that is why SEO-Space has not been included in the Open Directory? I have submitted SEO-Space a couple of times and have not had any feedback as to why we're still not listed there. None-the-less I like the idea of the DMOZ blog. At least it shows that there is still a heartbeat in one of the most trusted directories out there.
- Let the ODP folks know what you think about DMOZ
- Communicate why you use the directory
- Communicate your thoughts as to if there something you would like to see fixed
- Find more information about becoming an editor
