The ONLY reason I bother to list with the DMOZ is because it is the only way to get into Googles directory. Plus it adds a substantial increase in your Google Pagerank. Plus all the smaller niche sites that do add your link help to boost your link popularity which never hurts.

I agree that you almost never see any hits coming from the DMOZ itself but what happens at Google after you're listed is another story. Other than boosting your site the DMOZ is pretty much useless as far as searching is concerned.

My site already is doing good at Google and the New Yahoo but I would like the boost from the DMOZ.

I mentioned the fact that their attribution was ridiculous because I plan on only using their data import just one time! After which it will be heavily modified and nothing like the DMOZ. No one at their forum had a comment on this.

I agree that they should maybe just allow a link back to them and maybe they would actually get a little more people to pay attribution. Just my 2 cents.

I was thinking of giving the thumbnailer a try. I'm just not sure how efficient it would be on my site since the database is fairly large. I'm still thinking about it though because it does look very interesting.
