There is good news for all the webmasters and SEO firms as they can again submit their site to DMOZ. For the past four months dmoz was on a hiatus. dmoz is the largest human edited directory of the web. DMOZ had previously suffered tarnished reputation as its editors have often been charged of showing favoritism and do not take sites who are in competition to their sites. However, a DMOZ listing stilll holds value as Google and some other search engines show some results from the DMOZ directory.
In October 2006, the editors and submissions were cut off at the directory. On 18th December, the editors started processing older submissions and though they could log in but sites could not be submitted by the webmasters. But now the work has resumed at DMOZ with editors processing the submissions and directory is taking submissions in its web directory. Submitting your site at DMOZ holds lot of advantages as the submissions are free, your ranks can improve in search engines and can drive more traffic to the site.
