Anyone got any ideas on how to get listed in DMOZ? I've tried with
several sites over the years and have never manage to get any of them

What are the secrets??

Look for directories with editors... or with editors above and/or below
them.  If there is no editor anywhere near you in the heirarchy it could
take forever for you to get in there.

Also, try posting in a few different categories... it will increase the
chance that an editor will come across your site and add you

Good content. And maybe it helps if you are not the site owner, no idea. I
have at least one DMOZ link, and hardly see any traffic coming from it.

A simple link in a blog gets me a lot of traffic. Don't ask for links, but
focus on your visitors linking to you.

Well, if you actually study, understand, and apply the
submission guidelines, you will distinguish yourself
from 80% of the other submissions. If you spent less
than an hour of research before starting to design your
submission, you probably didn't do those things.
Having a website that supplies something of value
to people is kindova plus, too.

Everyone can now collectively say "duh" and resume
blasting in those wrong-category, keyword-laden-to-the-
point-of-illiteracy submissions for spammy websites
