Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I've tried a new other domain names and it seems that there is something wrong with the Seach box at [directory.google.com...]
That's weird huh.
Dmoz will never get my money for any advertising, better listings or anything - that's for sure.
DMOZ is creating a human-edited directory on a volunteer basis. Their 'customer' is either people looking for results that all pass the sniff test of a human, and not just a spider, or alternatively you could consider the editors themselves the 'customer'.
It's hard to get a site added either because there aren't enough volunteers to find time to review it, or because one of the volunteers didn't like it.
That's really bad news - DMOZ has no money to spend as it is - and now they aren't getting the money from you - I see they stopped the paid ads on other sites.
Looks like they have will no revenue next month either - they seem to no ads on their site this week.
