Buying A Dmoz-listed Domain From An Owner

I also think the ODP is losing its significance, with one of the main reasons being the lack of interest from some of its editors. After all, dmoz exclusively relies on volunteer (read Unpaid) editors to manage its index.
Will Google entirely drop the ODProject at one point in time and create its own index from scratch? Maybe. After all, Google already has a BIG index of 8 billion or so pages, according to its homepage. So, the question is, does Google still needs the ODP?
Maybe time will tell.
By default, we still submit all the sites we optimize to dmoz, unless a client specifically requests not to.

But forget about that. Sedo.com, one of the largest sites for selling domains, just wrote an article about my site, DropListPro.com, and sent it out in their newsletter this morning. It's only 10:30AM and I've already had over 150 unique visitors, over 400 hits, and 2 conversions.
I realize this is off topic, but I'm just so excited. I placed the article they wrote on my site at: www.droplistpro.com/press/sedo.com_05-23-2005.htm
Three weeks ago my site was averaging about 20 hits a day. I sent out a press release, my traffic jumped and than averaged about 50-75 hits a day. Now you can understand my amazement when I looked at my traffic this morning and saw the email from sedo informing me they wrote an article about my site. This is a definite breakthrough and I owe it all to Karon Thackston (aka copywriter) for helping me create the ultimate press release.
Here is the 5 page thread about the press release:

how about dir.yahoo.com
$299 to list! wooohoooo... is it worth it?

In my opinion, not worth it in the least. In fact.
These days it's more of a hindrance than a help. See our other threads on Yahoo Directory listings[/hr].

The first one, which was a smaller site without much popularity, took about 2 weeks to be modified. That change was about the domain name.
The second one, a local television site which has good visibility in Québec, took about 2 months to be revised.
Both requests were done in categories without editors.
As far as the “worth” of a good description in DMOZ, I have to say that it probably depends on the industry and the nature of change. What was clear to me (on the 1st modification request) is that once the domain name was changed, it affected the way Google indexed the site in a matter of 2 days.
Basically, the domain name displayed in DMOZ was the one Google used, so as long as it was the wrong one, Google wouldn’t index (and rank) the site for anything. As soon as the corrections were done, Googlebots went through the entire site and indexed it in no time. That tells me Google still uses DMOZ, but maybe mostly for smaller markets (?)

1. DMOZ listing helps PageRanking, because so many other directories pick up contents from the DMOZ within 30 days. My guess is that Page Ranking jumps to 3 for just bein in DMOZ. It is not because the DMOZ has listed the site, it is because of the links coming from all the other directories.
2. DMOZ is not the only answer to increase PR. Incoming text links are the best help to increase PR. The quality of incoming links has always been discussed. In my opinion, the quantity matters, quality does not.
3. The site needs to be found. The searchability of the site has nothing to do with DMOZ. The quality of <Title>, and <H1> tags are the two most important items for searchability.
Oh yes! inclusion of misspelled word (commom misspelling) is a good trick.
Time for another coffee!

I think it's a good buy! If you don't want it, then let me know how I can contact the owner of that domain name
