DMOZ-to-AOL Propagation

How often? Is it important?

Before finding WebmasterWorld, I used to think that having my site in the AOL (DMOZ) Directory would be a huge boost to traffic (for my relatively small site), given the gazillion AOL users out there. But I don't see much discussion here, even a site search turned up little. Is traffic from the AOL-DMOZ directory negligible? Any estimates on when they will update the directory, given the successful RDF dump? Thanks in advance.

Traffic from the directory itself is near zero. It does give you a Google link which helps a little if you don't have many, like less than a dozen or so.
I have never quite figured out how AOL ranks the directory listings - it seems to change a lot. I suppose if you showed up on the first page it would help.
