Hi All,

I have a question about DMOZ and Google Directory. I want to know weather both are same or not because when we submit to google directory then it finally comes to dmoz but its not showing all the records from dmoz into google directory.

Let me explain, i submitted my site into google directory and tooks me to dmoz to submit and i did it. My site is added in dmoz but its not yet come into google directory as well other dmoz directories (affiliate) and also its not showing me from the home page of dmoz when i serch for my site name but when i visit the category i submitted, its there.

Could any body please explain me the relation between google directo, dmoz, dmoz affiliate directory and search of dmoz.

My site is there in dmoz category but not showin while searching from text box and also not there in google directory and any dmoz affiliate directory. My site is added just 3 days back into dmoz.

Thanks

Works like this:

Submitting to DMOZ will get you into Google's directory when Google's refreshes its directory database from DMOZ. If you are listed in DMOZ you will eventually appear in Google's database, it may take a few weeks to appear.

DMOZ affliates work in a similar fashion, when they refresh their databases with the current DMOZ database you will appear in their directory.

As for searching within the DMOZ site, I have had problems with this as well. I am listed in DMOZ but cannot find myself using the search. ..... Can someone explain?

BTW I would limit your signature links to 2. I think it says it in the OZZU rules.

Hope this helps.

You trying to take my job or something ;-)

As for not finding it in the search, I have talked to a few editors who have just told me the search is poor and is being updated. Though this has now been happening for over a year with one of my sites.

It does take some time to "trickle down" depending on how often directories are updated.

I believe Google only updates their directory 2-3 times a year.

Any one else watching that?
