HOWEVER, doe's DMOZ have a good list of topical directories where vancyborg might look for listing / link-building opportunities?
What's the best way to search DMOZ for topical directories?
Is there a particularly good search query or search process?

Instead of providing another list here, or instead of providing links to lists elsewhere, I HAVE A QUESTION:
For any given website, which presumably focuses on a particular industry vertical or subject, what's the best way to identify quality linking opportunities in industry or subject themed directories?
This isn't a thread to post your directory or a list of directories OR your favorite directory. This thread is about how to search for and identify quality directories themed to your industry.
Is it as simple as searching "subject + 'directory'"?
Subject + 'guide'?
Does a website with a quality directory "doesn't always look like a directory (only) website"? Maybe folks are looking for the wrong thing? A website may have a section dedicated to directory type listings (not a mere reciprocal link directory) that sometimes functions as an authority directory for an industry.
My site get over 900 new submissions a month which is pretty good for a niche directory just because it shows up at the top of many searches for it's niche.
People sign up in droves, 20K-30K visitors daily, lot's of direct advertisers and I send them lots of qualified traffic.
Whether you would consider it a quality directory or not, I don't care, it gets the job done! ;)
