    You've missed the free directory window of opportunity. They're now irrelevant and not paying their way.

    Dmoz directory is totally outdated now. Its of no use, so please don't waste your precious time. Instead of Dmoz, I would suggest you to go for Social Bookmarking, Press Release, Article Directory, Guest Posting.

    Hey @macG, I would like to go with you. Yup, it would be better if we look into PRs, articles & blogs rather than wasting our precious time.

    This statement is so true. It seems like it was yesterday when I was running a directory, though it has been a few years. Pretty much all the friends I had in the directory business moved on to other ventures, offline careers, etc.

    Actually in my area of software (not link directories, but studio software) there are about 4 directories in the top 10, and one of them is #1 or #2. I think they actually come back a little. There are Freemium type directories.

    You are absolutely right. DMOZ is closed.

    But would you believe it Curlie.org has all the sites, some of the editors and is back in business taking over from the dead DMOZ.

    We are accepting editors, sites for review for a possible listing and re-instating old editors who left DMOZ with a clean sheet.

    Over 3 million sites already listed. Come on over and see for yourself.

    Just curious, who owns this site? dmoz-odp.org/
    Is this a revival or a copycat?
