DMOZ (ODP): "Submit Once & Forget It" Says SEOs

Jul 14, 2009 • 9:10 am | comments (4) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Open Directory Project (DMOZ)

Earlier this month, we polled our audience asking how important is DMOZ to your SEO strategy? As expected, most SEOs take the philosophy of "submit it and forget it." Why? Simply because to many SEOs, it is not worth them wasting their time following up with DMOZ when many editors won't act on those follow ups.

Here are the full poll results:

Question: How Important is DMOZ (ODP)?

:: Submit Once & Forget It said 158 respondents or 63% :: Don't Bother Submitting said 49 respondents or 20% :: Submit & Follow Up said 40 respondents or 16% :: Other answer... said 2 respondents or 1%

I agree, I usually submit it and forget it. But I also manually review every link in the category. Many times there's a website or a domain name in that category that's either or available for registration or you can purchase it. Then you quickly have a DMOZ listing.
