DMOZ Submission Update

Back in July, we submitted a site to DMOZ. We walked through the steps of selecting a category, writing a title and description that might be accepted and submitting.

From looking at the last update date at the bottom of the Home – Home Improvement – Furniture category, our suggested site was accepted within a month of submission:

Furniture Care Tips – Short articles on care and maintenance for various types of furniture.

The title was accepted as submitted, and the description was edited. While I may feel that my suggested description was the better of the two, the listed description offers a brief overview about the sites content.

Did following the guidelines expedite our listing? Probably not. At best, we submitted the site at the right time. Just before an editor took an interest in reviewing the submissions within the category we submitted to.

Are we seeing an improvement in the search engine rankings or traffic as a result? Hardly, I’m not seeing a single referral from DMOZ for the month of November so far.

Do we still recommend that you submit your sites to DMOZ? Sure. Just don’t have any expectations when you do. Best of luck with your submissions.
