Site listed in DMOZ: being pulled by low PR directories

Does it affect my PR ranking? It's a 4 now, a 7 previously

Hi,

Should I ask these low PR Directories to remove my site
from theirs? One said his pulls his content from dmoz.

Thanks

No site is under any obligation to remove your site, just because you ask them.

Are you asking if a low PR site links to yours, it lowers your PR? If you are, its not even remotely close to being true. Those low PR DMOZ clones will be doing the opposite and helping your PR!

I understand that, however, I always understand that low PR links affect your PR.

I don't recall where I heard that.

It affects it by increasing it!

So, a PR Directory of 2 will help my PR? Lately, I have gone from a 7 to a 4. If not, what else could it be?

A PR 1 site can only increase your PR. It can never hurt you to ask someone to remove a link to you.

YES

>I have gone from a 7 to a 4

It won't be because of a Directory listing.

I wrote too quickly. I meant it WILL hurt you to remove links to you. It will NEVER hurt you to keep links to you.
