    DMOZ submission will increase traffic and visitors , some credit also to increase the Page rank as well.

    Recent sources please.

    My sites collectively get around 3 visits from DMOZ yearly... and I am talking 7 listed sites, thats less then one visit a year! Are you really saying such traffic is worthy of having?

    And as for page rank, your millage may vary, as many pages listed in the ODP have a Page Rank of ZERO, and some rank on Alexa in the millions. Again, not much to brag about.

    To top all that off, editors do not claim any perks for a listed site.

    And when you do submit a site, and the page tells you that it may be a while for sites using ODP data to get listed on them, note, that most of the sites listed you can no longer even find a reference to the ODP on their sites, let alone the ODP data they use (which they actually no longer use, if ya didnt catch that).

    Google uses DMOZ to to fill up some missing information when displaing in search results but I don't think it's a guarantee for page pank in search engines

    Erm, yes it does. It's well known that if Google cannot capture a title/description from the website itself, then it looks at data from DMOZ, if the site is listed in DMOZ, it uses the DMOZ title/description. This is one of the reasons they created the "noodp" tag, so website owners could opt-out.

    Here is an example: https://www.google.com/search?q=Uni...a:en-US:official&client=firefox-a&channel=rcs

    First result: United States Early Radio History
    earlyradiohistory.us/
    Articles and extracts about early radio and related technologies, in the United States from 1897 to 1927. By Thomas H. White.

    Notice the site has this at the top of the page however, the description in Google's search results is slightly different. Google has chosen to use the DMOZ version which includes punctuation and the word 'By'.

    See http://www.dmoz.org/Arts/Radio/History/ last listing on the page:

    "United States Early Radio History - Articles and extracts about early radio and related technologies, in the United States from 1897 to 1927. By Thomas H. White."

    I just picked this at random, it was very easy to find an example.
