Getting listed in Dmoz

I have been trying to get into dmoz for 2years now. I have submitted 3 times within 2 years. Not too many. I have contacted the editor 2 times to follow up. Today I went to the shopping furniture category I have been trying to get into and checked all of the websites there and I found 3 websites that were not furniture related at all they are tech links. Is there anyway I can report that to DMOZ?

You can report them at the resource dmoz forum (google it) - there is a subforum there for reporting this - DMOZ does apprciate the help, as with 4 590 961 listed there will alwsys be some dead sites, hijacks etc

Thanks for the great information. I did post it in the forum their but I think that was the wrong place. Does anybody know what the trick is to get into DMOZ?

There are no tricks. Just:

1. Have a site that has good valuable content that is better than the sites already listed (otherwise whats the point of listing it?)
2. Write a perfect guideline compliant description and title (best way to get an editors attention in the pool of submitted sites)
3. Submit ONCE to the ONE best category (don't resubmit unless an editor tells you; BUT, maybe submit to a regional category as well)
4. After one month check at the relevant forum to make sure the submission got through (tech problems do happen from time to time)
5. Move on; forget about it; there is nothing more that can be done; don't obsess over it; spend your time improving the site and promoting it through other means.
