Having your website listed in the DMOZ directory can be beneficial for your search engine rankings. It is however almost impossible to get your site listed within some of the categories. This is normally due to the category editors having huge backlogs and not enough time to control the flow of listings suggested. We have included some basic methods & strategies that may potentially help get your site listed in dmoz, within a quicker period of time:

- If there are many related categories that you website would fit into, try suggesting it to one that has its edits updated on a regular basis. You can monitor the edits by checking the 'last update' text - located at the bottom of the screen.

- When it comes to suggesting your website, it is vital that you submit a very well descriptive application. Make sure that your title is your company or websites official name. Do not promote your site within the description, include some useful information about your website and be sure to do a spell & grammar check before submitting.

- If you still find you cant get listed, consider applying to become a dmoz editor. This is a strict procedure, they are very cautious on who they accept to join their team due to corruption and link spamming. Good luck!
