    How long to be listed on DMOZ.org

    Today, I checked my logs and noticed that an editor from dmoz finally come onto my site after 3 months after I submitted my site to them.. So I'm wondering how long will I actually see it up on dmoz? Thanks in advance..

    It shouldn't be much longer now, so long as they accept your site.
    There are some DMOZ editors here, hopefully they can explain the process they go through.

    I'm a DMOZ editor, and the process isn't very complex. Once a request for a new website is added, you just have to look at the site, it's description, title etc. and hit add site.

    Unfortunately a lot of DMOZ editors are either to lazy, or don't have the time to look at their category.

    If they visited your site and didn't add it immediately then chances are they're not going to add it.

    The same editor visited that many times?

    See its not like a search engine where once your site is visited it'll be added in the next update.

    With DMOZ an editor visits your site and either adds it or they don't. If they add it it'll be in the directory instantly and in the search results within a few days.

    If they don't add it then they can do 2 things, delete it, or leave it as unreviewed. Unreviewed is usually for sites that seem to be temporarily down, or that are still under construction. Or it means the editor thought your site would be better listed elsewhere and moved the unreviewed listing to another category.

    Yeah.. He/she visited that many times however didn't not browse around the site. Just our main page.. This is very disappointing. Is there a way I can check to see if my submission is deleted or whatever? Thanks.

    Nope. No way to check.

    This is irritating.. Again.. Just today, this same editor visited 3 times.. What is he doing?? Why not just add my site already..

    Should I email shoot an email to the editors and ask them why haven't they added me?

    I would suggest sending an email to the editor of the category. I did that after my site wasn't listed for a month and the day I sent the email my site was added and the editor even wrote me to let me know she added my site.
