Top 10 Best Tips To Get Your Blog/Website Listed in DMOZ

When ever it comes to searching we always prefer Google as it has the finest techniques to collect quality content from all across the internet. Google still owns more then 70 percent of search engine share in the market which makes it, stand out performer from several years.

Google is all about trust, by this I means how much trust they have in your blog/website. It’s a good idea to show Google your blog is full of admirable content. This can be done in several different ways. But in this post I will be sharing the one way of achieving trust from Google, and therefore today we will be discussing how we can get out blog listed in DMOZ (open source website directory)

DMOZ is an open source website directory, the websites which are listed in DMOZ are highly professional therefore DMOZ only include those sites which have some worth. The reason why it’s important to get listed in DMOZ is that it will give your site a High Page Rank from Google. As a result your site will be displayed in the top ten search engine results.

1.Why Google Give's Respect To DMOZ:

Now you all would be thinking why Google liked DMOZ, it’s not even owned by Google. Google knows DMOZ is tough to get into, because every single website/blog submission is monitored by human reviewers. All the hard work is done by Volunteers, this not only saves money but it removes computer errors. So it means when ever you will submit your site to DMOZ, no matter when happens your site will be reviewed by a volunteer till it gets approved. This is the reason why Google rides on the back of DMOZ and give importance to those websites which are listed in it.

2.Why it takes so Patience to get listed in DMOZ:

As I have mentioned above each DMOZ listing is done by a volunteer, by hands in the old fashion way. And another bitter truth DMOZ has fewer volunteers, which makes the process really slow. But the biggest disadvantage of having a human volunteer, it increases the chances of errors which is heart snatching for publishers

3. Chose Correct Category For your Site:

Selecting the category of a website/blog is actually very important, one of the biggest reasons why your site listing gets delayed is due to the wrong category selection. Try to select the most accurate category before submitting your site to DMOZ

4. Avoid Fake Submitting Software:

If you are using automate software to boost your SEO then it may sound good for some directories but for DMOZ, its not. If you want to see your site listed in DMOZ, then using software to submit a site is totally against the rules and regulation (Guidance) of DMOZ guideline. You should keep in your mind that, any site submitted with the software would be rejected straight away

5. Don’t submit your site again and again:

Submitting the same website again and again to DMOZ can annoy the volunteer. So don’t over do it, just keep it simple by submitting your site once. After submitting your site, wait for few months to get the desirable results.

6. Avoid copying others Content:

If you site is full of affiliate systems, and your site is overflowing from the content which is copied from somewhere else or any content which violate DMCA copyright law then no matter what happens DMOZ will reject your site submission.
7. The Editors Guidance
Just like choosing the correct category for your website, it’s very vital that you read all thebasics guidance present on DMOZ before submitting your website/blog. If you failed to do so, then it may cost you and your site listing.

8. Looking For Active Category Editor:

Even if you were able to choose the correct category for your site, but if there is no active Editor (Volunteer) available for that category. Then you’re going to wait annoying long time to get your site listed. If  you have noticed, when you are viewing any specific category at at the very bottom of the page it says Last update: [Day, Month Date, Year Time]. If the category that you are thinking to apply is not updated from couple of years, then it means the editor is maybe not active.

Now in this case you have to choose in between two options. One to apply for editor or second to select the category which is updated on regular basics

9. Get the domain already listed:

The easiest technique to get listed in DMOZ is to buy the domain which is already listed in DMOZ. Sound pretty childish but it is the single shortest way to get listed.

10.Don’t pay To get listed

The 9 tips above are highly professional if you followed these tips, you don’t need to pay any one for listing you in DMOZ. And according to DMOZ paying an editor for listing your site is against the rules and regulation. So stay away

So these were the tips that you should keep in your mind before submitting your site to DMOZ. Soon we will share how you can become an Editor at DMOZ to guarantee your website listing so stay tuned. Till then Peace blessing and happy listing.

Good Art Work Syed. Appreciate your blog. But as the above comment. There are many people who just see the site not the content. And as this looks just like MBT one. People may think that this is one directly copied from MBT. As the name too looks something similar. Please change the template and you will rock.
