Frequency of Open Directory submissions

September 26th, 2006


Q: Is once a month too often to resubmit your site to Open Directory)?

A: Yes. Resubmitting will probably only hurt your chances of getting your listing approved. If it’s been a while and you’re getting worried, first check for discussion of your submission at the DMOZ Resource Zone ( If several months have passed, then consider politely emailing the editor of the category you submitted to (check the bottom of the relevant category page in the Google Directory for a link to the editor’s profile).
