    My websites (wassoufclub.com) and (wassoufworld.com) are the only sites listed in the Wassouf, George category in Dmoz.Org

    However, when you type the main keyword of my sites, WassoufClub.com shows # 1 in google.com , and WassoufWorld shows # 4 or 5.

    I think i have read that sites listed in dmoz.org are toplisted in search engines

    Please Clarify.

    Wow man that is a big question to answer.

    How can you improve your ranking? get the keywords in the page titles, sprinkle it around the page and get links. Personally the moment I get a site into the top 10, I leave well alone on the page, and just get more links.

    1. A Dmoz listing doesn't directly mean better search engine rankings. Why being accepted in Dmoz helps though? Because Dmoz is a trusted source to have a link from, also TONS of websites feed of dmoz and display it's content, therefore your getting way more then just 1 link, you get several.

    2. Getting higher rankings would require you to read some more information about SEO. DigitalPoint is an excellent choice to do so. Try SEO-GUY forums and even SEOCHAT. There is just too many ends and factors to list in 1 thread and learning SEO isn't just for your current website, its for every single one you will built in the future.

    I think your case is a very typical one, and I am very glad you posted it.

    So many SEOs believe that a listing in the ODP is some sort of "silver bullet" for Google - it just isn't so.

    You have to do much, much more to make a successful site marketing strategy. If it was easy, there wouldn't the good people around here getting paid to do it, now, would there? :)

    boohlick - I have no clue, I'm afraid. I have no idea what Google does with the ODP data, other than use it to update their own directory.

    Whether beyond the original one any of those extra clone links carries any weight for Google is another question, though.

    I got a listing for an average quality site in a non-corrupt category.
    For some searches dmoz title replaces actual site title. This shows G respects at least part of dmoz a lot.

    I can't say I've ever seen that, although Google does draw snippets for the description from various places, possibly including Google Directory listing.
