Since it's been awhile since anyone has expressed any concern for belonging to the ODP/DMOZ index I'm going to let this one slip through the filters set in place by the Directory Forum Charter [webmasterworld.com ] . . just to see if anything has changed about the answers, theories, grievances or whining/whinging.
I suspect not. Indeed, I expect that I'll hear crickets chirping . . but I could be wrong.
Fire away folks.
This late in the evolution of the WWW does the ODP matter and, if so, how?
I think a link is a link is a link. I think that as we move forward the "standard of care", for traffic development, is to get ANY link that's a link from something more than a splog or the latest DMOZ clone or the latest "SEO Pagerank directory" . . . but I just wouldn't work that hard or worry that much about links down the food chain.
So, will the ODP/DMOZ rise again from the ashes?
