87% Says ODPs Don't Overly Matter For Rankings

ODP Link SEO PollWe recently showed in a poll results post that only 26% would buy a Yahoo Directory link.

But how important do these same users feel an ODP (dmoz.org) link is? I ran a poll a couple months ago asking what is the value of a DMOZ link and I asked it by asking...

If you lost a DMOZ link, would it have a major impact on your rankings?

87% of the almost 300 responses say no, it won't have a major impact on their Google rankings. Only 13% said it would have a major impact on their Google rankings.

Do these responses surprise you?

Please read my poll disclosure policy before jumping to any scientific conclusions.
