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.

I know you can only submit one article to be considered for a niche site every 14 days. Is that 14 days from when you submitted your last article, or 14 days from when a decision was made on it or it was moved to the niche site? It took almost 2 weeks for the article I submitted to go through the...

I submitted an article nearly 5 weeks ago after an editor requested that it be edited. Should it take this long to be submitted to a Niche site, or if it is no longer considered, is a notification issued?

We all know search engines like Google,yahoo, bing, and etc are all major search engines. We get indexed by these sites. I was wondering has anyone submitted their URL to "Less Known" Search engines before.I just submitted to a few sites that are not as popular, but I was like what the...

A minor thing, but some sort of notification to announce that the 14 day interval in-between submitting to niche sites has passed would be nice; it could be as little as a note on top of the "my account" page. To my knowledge, nothing of this nature yet exists.It would also be cool to...

It would be very helpful if the team would place some sort of small mark next to articles or above them to show writers that they are ready, time wise, to be submitted to a niche site. Otherwise, we have to keep a chart of some sort, which is very time consuming to do, especially if we have...
