Just checked out rdf.dmoz.org and found that the full RDF dump is online. (Not the nocatid one that they published a few weeks ago but the full one including categories)

Hopefully this means that some of the down streams (Google, Alexa, Altavista etc etc) will take the update.

Nice... Since they did a dump there would be a good chance that people like Google will update...

Google will probably update within a few weeks, maybe next week or the one after, and in any case is unlikely to be more then 5 or 6 weeks.

However this is of no concern to ODP editors, as they have no control over who downloads and uses the ODP data, nor how often they revisit for updates.

Or maybe Google is updating their directory now? Just wondering, because for me the Google directory is acting odd--not displaying the log or the PageRanks of the directory sites.

I missed the pagerank in the Google directory also. To me it only looks like a problem with the gif-files ("/img/pos.gif" and "/img/neg.gif") of the pagerank. Google's logo at the top of the page ("/img/Google_OD.gif") is also missing.

When you look at the HTML-source, the img-tags (including the 'width=22', etc) are still there.

But dblobaum could be right about a Google directory update.

yes , i can confirm this. the top image and the pr-images are missing. i think this is a good sign, although i can't see the relation between the new RDF dump and the images.

Looks like false alarm. Logo and pagerank reappeared, but nothing else changed (as far as I can see).

It's still missing for me as of 5 min ago... Though i can't see what that has to do with updating the directory.

Step 1. Download DMOZ RDF
Step 2. Delete all images from directory.google.com
Step 3. Wait...
Step 4. Wait a little more
Step 5. Publish new directory
Step 6. Reupload images...

When I posted my previous message, directory.google.com had the logo and PR images. Later it was gone, but still visible for directory.google.de and directory.google.nl.

Now I don't see these images anymore. The only reason I can think of that these images are sometimes shown, and then disappear, is 'load balancing' which also causes the everflux. So if some data centres have the image and others have not, it is sometimes visible and sometimes not. Why are these gif-files missing in some data centers? I don't know. Is there a relation with updating with data from new RDF dump? You can only speculate.
