I just looked up the exact numbers, and the above are the current figures for today. If anyone is wondering exactly why it sometimes takes so long to get sites approved, the above statistics should reveal why. I do have access to the complete breakdown, but I don't think the Powers That Be at the ODP would approve of me revealing this publicly. However, the most backlogged categories are Business, Computers and Shopping. No surprised there about Business and Shopping, although this high number of unrevieweds in Computers surprises me. The percentage unrevieweds in Business as compared to the the number of listed sites is staggeringly high. Of course a lot of those are no doubt spam. However, the editors have to slog through the spam to get to the sites that should be listed.
