Has anyone used this open directory / search engine? If so please let me know the pros and cons and what success rate you have had.
It's a free directory so there's nothing bad about submitting your website. Also, it has a very good page rank. Depending on your site, it'll take them 1-7 days to submit.
(I've submitted my personal website)
Have they sped things up recently? Years ago it was easy to get listed. But due to high volume and using all volunteers, I've heard it can take months to get listed, if ever.
Submitting is always a good idea. But I've heard it can take a long time.
edit: None of my sites have been listed yet, and they were submitted over a year ago.
They are pretty much a lost cause these days, unfortunately they rarely update their directory with new listings. Doesn't hurt to submit and would be beneficial if you got in but I wouldn't spend a lot of time on it.
I had no idea it had changed so much. But it is now an open directory that works in conjunction with aol. And yes, they do remove sites very rapidly and add them very rarely now.
It's pretty hard to get in, I only have three sites in there. You can apply but I think you should bear in mind the following.
Is your site specific?
Is your site regularly udated?
Make sure your site is NOT under construction
Do you own the domain.
