It is the merge of the words "Directory Mozilla" (http://directory.mozilla.org/)

Its former name, at the time of founding, was 'gnuhoo' (also known as newhoo) Infact there still remains copies at the domains: http://gnuhoo.com/ and http://newhoo.com/

hi,

long back i came across this page that shows how these search engines
are linked together (sharing). Hope this may help you at some extent in getting a picture on domz and others.

What site are you on about? Is it http://www.vsssleep.com ?

If it is that one it has been listed in http://dmoz.org/Shopping/Home_and_Garde ... m/Airbeds/ for just over a month.

I've been waiting for my sites to be listed also.
On 1 of them it's been over 6 months.

Which site are you on about?

If it is http://www.onlinemarts.com/ then it has been rejected in the past month or so and it is un-listable in its current format. The reason it has been turned down is because it is an affiliate link directory which is not eligable for a listing.

The ODP prefer to list the originator of the content as opposed to sites that link to them.

There is no way at all to speed up the process other than to take time to write a good title and description when submitting it.

Out of the ones in your signature 2 out of the 3 is listed.
