DMOZ Question

P: n/a
I've just submitted a site to DMOZ Open Directory - Does anyone know
if I will be told when if I appear in the list or will I have to keep
checking?

Many thanks

You won't.
or will I have to keep
checking?


Yes, beware that DMOZ submissions are regularly ignored or shelved
indefinitely. Afaik many categories on DMOZ have no editor.

You'll get no reply. Mark it on the calendar to search every month at
least. After 2 or 3 months (I don't recall their recommendation) resubmit.
Took me a year to get a site listed, it finally was with a mispelling,
working on that now...

Correct.

least. After 2 or 3 months (I don't recall their recommendation) resubmit.


If your submission made it into the queue for that category, there is
absolutely no need to resubmit. Resubmitting simply overwrites the older
submission, and updates the submission date. That can actually work
*against* you if the editor who processes that queue sorts it by date so
as to tackle the oldest submissions first.

After at least a month, go to to http://www.resource-zone.com/ and ask
about the status of your submission in the "Site Submission Status" forum.
Read the sticky posts at the top of the forum first, to find out the
guidelines for doing this.
