Barry Schwartz reports that The Open Directory's Home Page Goes Missing In Google.

"a search on dmoz (the Open Directory's nickname) does not return the home page in the search results.

Similarly, searches for open directory or open directory project also don't list the site at the usual address. Yes, the screenshot shows a page at — but normally, the home page would be listed at or just

(as you can see at Yahoo, Microsoft and Ask, for example)."

The best part is that 'a search for' does not even show results of the Dmoz home page. To add more insult, the home page does is not even included in Google's cache.
