When some of my sites got into the
Google Business DMOZ directory It was really a turning point for them in there organic search engine rankings. Those rankings of course lead to increased traffic and sales so that begs the question how much is a DMOZ listing worth?
I have been trying to get this blog into the DMOZ for over a year. I have submitted 4-5 applications in the last year each about 3 months apart yet I get no love. I have even contacted a few editors and no response. Whats up ?
Some others suggest for competitive categories if you send a “donation” or “seo consulting” fee to dmoz editor’s email on there profile page that you will get right in. Does anyone know about that? If It is true what would it be worth to you?
Judging that a Yahoo Directory Entry costs 300$ per year I am guessing that a listing so I am guessing a lifetime placement in DMOZ I would estimate its worth to be $1500.00 ??
Sounds like its pretty lucrative to be a DMOZ editor. I am not going to pay for a entry for my blog mainly because well… its a blog =P. I will let the process roll. If it does ever make it in I will post about it.
Ohhh if you want to read others opinions on if the DMOZ takes money check out this. Some interesting reads.
