A few years ago I became an editor on DMOZ. The categories I chose were pretty static, so eventually my account got deactivated because I wasn’t using it.
But I recently got re-excited about being able to edit the directory, so I’ve gotten my account re-activated and I’m back in business! Maybe after a week or so of maintaining my current categories I’ll branch out and pick up another one.
Anyways, editing is pretty fun and adding or removing sites from the directory can drastically effect their search engine listings, so the changes you make actually matter.
Getting approved for a small category is very easy and only takes a few minutes of work. So head over to DMOZ, pick an unedited category, and apply for it using the link at the bottom.
