    It's dmoz[.]org - one of the oldest directories, which now is virtually dead.
    No point of submitting there as there's nobody to review your website anyway.

    Even when it was active the odds were against you ever getting listed without paying someone to do it.

    Actually I am not sure that there was a monetary barrier to listings. It had more to do with the good ole' boys nature of the "CLUB". You know someone, you get in. You manage a particular category that also related to your own sites; you got in. You submitted via the process and you hit a part of the site that was actually managed and the editor in charge was actually actively managing that category; you got in. You submitted via the process and an editor that was actively managing submissions edited other categories that other editors were not actively editing and that particular category happened to be the one you submitted to and your site did not suck; you got in.

    open directory is a project of AOL and it is named after DMOZ. (directory Mozilla). The best ever live directory site in internet that gives you a value in search engine if your website got listed in it. but the very important thing is you have to maintain the quality of the post and the content of your site. You have to keep in mind the category while you submit a post. hope it helps
