    You obviously haven't read the submission instructions. Submit once to the most appropriate category. Every time you submit again you send your site to the bottom of the pile if the editor sorts in date received order.
    SEMrush
    Some sites get listed in a week, some take years. Average is about 6 months if the site is accepted but there is a huge variation between categories.

    I had heard about this "bottom of the pile thing" but assumed it was not true. Gosh, I hope that my brother-in-law (the one that does not like me) does not keep submitting my site everyday just to make sure I am not listed :D

    PS: Kidding, I do not have a brother in law who does not like me :)

    DMOZ requires a lot more content than you have on this site. Once you make the site worthwhile you'd be better off submitting it according to guidelines.

    Trust me on this. ;)

    Hey, I have a good software for scanning through dmoz for expired domains but I can't find any expired domains. I scanned exactly 49,889 domains (which only took the software I use about 3 hours) but I didn't find a single expired domain. The categories were Games and Computers that I scanned if that helps.

    Is this normal for you?
    What category has the most expired domains?
    Does this trick even work anymore? I noticed this thread was started along time ago.

    Answers to any of the above would be great.

    The real answer is that you are wasting your time on a rather worthless link.

    Games have pretty active team and robbozilla just removed more dead links then new links listed in August. You'll have to wait a while before some link goes dead to play.

    DMOZ has software to scan for expired domains too. ;)

    If you have a site listed, don't let the URL expire before renewing it as the listing will have been delisted until an editor checks the site and its registration status manually. It isn't robozilla that does the delisting as far as I remember, but it is very effective, as some appear to have discovered.

    Good point, brizzie.

    Given the high level of efficiency at DMOZ, if you don't renew that domain within at least... oh, I don't know... a year and a half?... someone at DMOZ will discover it's no longer registered and delist you. :rolleyes:

    No Minstrel - as Compostannie says, the detection and delisting systems are automated. They run pretty well constantly I think. Listings of expired domains are removed just before the final expiry date. That is why Brizzie's advice is good. Don't leave renewal until the last minute.

    First, there are a lot of excellent reasons that have nothing to do with DMOZ for ensuring that you don't let domains expire. The main one is that if you don't protect your domains, any that have any value at all (either because of the name or because of the PR) will be grabbed up by speculators or, worse, porn sites (the latter happened to me in the 90s when I was a bit more naive).

    Second, the automated DMOZ checkers are looking for 404 not found sites. If your domain is snatched by someone else and still exists but with different content, I doubt that the automated link checkers at DMOZ are going to report anything amiss.

    minstrel, you really need to shut your mouth when you don't know what you're talking about. Yes, the ODP does have systems in place to check for 404 sites. But why would it not have systems in place to check for expired domains as well?
    Yes they will.

    Thanks for the (unsolicited) personal advice. :rolleyes:

    I remain unconvinced that anything automated at DMOZ is that sophisticated. Care to enlighten me on just how your automated linkcheckers can discern that a live and active link has changed content? And if they have that capability, why DMOZ is not more efficient at deleting bad links from the directory?

    I don't think that it would benefit us to explain to the world and her husband exactly how we do these things. Not with people around so keen to find a gap in the system. Do you?

    As usual you are full of it. :rolleyes:

    This thread is more than 1.5 year old and DMOZ still hasn't succeed to find the domains that I bought, even when the domains show the content from the child porn thread in this forum and other web sites that discuss DMOZ problems. :rolleyes:
