People have been trying link directories for various ways before Google banning the link directory backlink function – it was the easiest way to get backlink and now a days still people are trying for it – but since Google has run-down the importance – so its wise to get traffic from these sources.
Now, why the case is different for DMOZ.
DMOZ is the largest human-edited link directory and most importantly it is free to get listed. But the question is why it is treated so important? The simple answer is Google takes its references from DMOZ link directory – as the DMOZ database is free to access.
In short Google is somewhat similar to link directory to host website information – but with just a turn – that – you go to DMOZ to list yourself and they approve and with Google the links are automatically crawled.
