You Down with ODP?

Posted by Melanie Phung on Wednesday, December 7, 2005 at 10:52 pm

I was planning on blogging about my ongoing quixotic travails of becoming a DMOZ (Open Directory Project) editor, based on my experience trying to submit entries and never getting any response, as well as a funny story told by SEO educator Bruce Clay during his training sessions about his attempts to do the same.

Looks like the funny story is going to have to do because they approved my application within 24 hours. I’m a volunteer editor for ODP, hooray – but don’t bother pestering me about getting your sites included in the directory (one of the holy grails of SEO). The category I’m editing is not a commercial one and I can’t approve entries in other categories. No special treatment – you’ll just have to submit your site and be ignored just like everyone else.

But Bruce Clay agreed to an interview, so at least you’ll get to read the story of Bruce Clay versus DMOZ.
