The thing is once you are listed in the DMOZ you are included in their RDF files for other directories to use. Once you are added to several other directories then your link popularity will increase and so will your PR. It does help to be listed. My PR is 5 without the listing but with a listing it could be 6 which makes a difference.

I added the attribution and the next day my site dropped from a number of search terms at Google. I'm wondering if Google penalizes sites that use data from the DMOZ? Maybe it assumes that there is no original content when it sees the attribution. Has anyone else experienced a drop after adding the attribution?
