SER Poll: ODP Influence Ranking?On February 20th, I asked our readers if they thought a listing in the Open Directory Project would have a major impact on a site's Google ranking. The response was split down the middle.

We only had 58 responses, which is very low for a typical Search Engine Roundtable poll, but the results were really down the middle.

As you can see, 47% said that a link from ODP does not have a major impact on your Google rankings. While 45% said a link from ODP will have a major impact on your Google rankings. Of course, the question is not clear cut and there can be "it depends," answers.
