I just did a specific search from google, and was curious if yahoo would produce anything similair. I found they both gave me almost exactly the same results! I understand that links are the key, but how important is DMOZ? Is it independent of the others or what?  Question

Yahoo uses Google results at the moment, however I heard that they will start using their own results soon. DMOZ is independant but Google uses it the most. You want to try and get in there if possible. It will get you in a lot more other directories, and Google will list you in their results if you make it into DMOZ. Smile

Hello Friends,

The DMOZ (Open Directory Project) has traditionally been important because it's edited by volunteers with an emphasis on accurate, quality listings.  Great care is taken to ensure that listings are accepted into the correct and most appropriate category within the directory, with a total absence of superlatives or marketing language.  Therefore, all listings in the directory are considered to be reliable, and relevant.

Whether or not a listing for your website in the DMOZ will improve your ranking in Google has been debated for years.  Our experience is that it's unlikely to impact your PageRank (Google PageRank system), but it does appear to improve your placement in the search results a little.

Thanks and Regards
