    Mike,

    This is really good stuff. Question though…Do you have any tips for actually getting listed in DMOZ? I have submitted my web site 3 times and been rejected each time. The first time I could understand because it was a half hearted submission. However, after much research and reading and coming to understand exactly how important that site is, I spent some serious time and effort on the last two submissions, only to be rejected twice more.

    Can you help?

    • Hi David,

      Thanks for reading and the comment.

      The short answer is this….DMOZ is the hardest FREE directory to submit to and to get accepted in IMHO. If you feel like you have followed the guidelines carefully each of the two times you submitted after your first rejection, then it’s highly likely you are selecting an improper category for your website. I have found more often than not, that is the case. Since each site is manually reviewed by a live person and those people have very strict instructions and guidelines about approvals, this is most often the reason for rejection. You are basing your interpretation of your sites category against theirs. And most times in these cases the two are just not on the same page.

      My first recommendation would be to try a similar, but different category. If that does not work after a couple of different categories, you may want to try and hire a professional submission service to try and submit for you. We have submitted many sites and have an AWESOME approval rating. Remember, it can take up to 180+ days for them to review each submission so be methodical in your submission and patient as you wait for a response!

      Best of luck to you David! And thanks again for reading, commenting and asking a great question!

  3. I think one of the most useful steps a small business can take is to get listed in Google places. It’s free, quite easy and there’s tons of information on how to do it best.
    The conversion rate on Google places is one of the highest you can get today given that your website appears in the first places. If the product/ service domain is not very competitive -you’ll have the best chances to appear at a high place and get a great exposure.

  4. Hi Anya – So true…Google places should always be a TOP priority for any small business with a website!

    Thanks so much for reading and for the comment!
