DMOZ is now showing PR 10. Pretty impressive, but well deserved. One of the most deserving sites on the Internet IMO.

>The point I was trying to make was that I felt the PR 10 was rather suspect considering the timing of the drop in Yahoo's PR and what that drop would do to all sites ... world wide and Google's PR database.

It surprises you that dmoz.org is a PR10 when *every* category in the Google directory clone links to the ODP?

[directory.google.com...]

That's a PR10 page. Scroll down to the bottom. I see a link to:

[dmoz.org...]

Now click on any Google directory category. *Every* page links to [dmoz.org...] With all those links from Google to the home page of dmoz.org, that goes a LONG way to explaining why it is PR10. I sure as heck wouldn't mind if Google linked that much to the home pages of my sites. ;)

I was curious and tried a command

link:http://www.dmoz.org -directory.google.com (is this the correct command?)

and got only 29 links and and when I checked out some of the pages, they were PR1, PR2,...

Does this mean that dmoz.org will be about PR3 to PR4 without the Google directory link or am I missing something?

Does this mean that Poobah and Google are the same or is this just coincidental?

Set A - Set B = 29
Set A - Set C = 29
=> Set B = Set C? Not necessarily.
