I have picked up from these forums that getting an Open Directory listing will get you listed in Google.

My site has been listed in ODP this week.

Does this mean my site will now be listed in the Google Index as well as the directory?

Maybe - maybe not. Depends when they downloaded the rdf dump. I might doubt it will get into the Googl'ized odp this time around. It's not enough time to get you into the search engine itself. I'd expect to wait until the next one late next month.

If you have been in the ODP for over a year, and now your not in GG, does that mean the "B" word?

Like Brett said, depends on when they do their dump. Last time the update happened I got a site listed in odp a week prior and it made it in that quick. However I have also had to wait the month or so. :)

I have a site that was added to the ODP last month. www2 on Google is now showing a link to their directory.
