What is the PMOZ™ Seal program and what is its purpose?
The purpose of the PMOZ™ seal program is to provide users with a list of the most top quality sites in our directory and reward the quality sites for doing the right thing. With over 10,000 sites and growing we realize it’s tough to filter out the superior sites from the average ones. This is done by separating sites into specific quality groups. The Top 100, PMOZ™ Certified, and PMOZ™ Quality Seal of Approval. To get a listing on PMOZ.org your sites must first be screened for quality, content, spam, and other factors which is reviewed and approved by our team before a submission goes live. Once a site is listed on PMOZ.org the webmaster of that site has the option to obtain the unique URL code from us to place on their site. Depending on the level of quality of each site we give out different rewards.
What is the PMOZ™ Top 100?
The PMOZ™ top 100 is updated regularly based on an algorithm from user rating, hits, customer feedback, PMOZ™ reputation and various other factors. The PMOZ™ top 100 is the highest quality award one can receive because it is unbiased and based solely on the feedback from real users. When joining a site in the top 100 you know that you will be getting quality content and service from a quality site that other users have been more than satisfied with.
What is the PMOZ™ Seal of Quality?
The PMOZ™ seal of quality and any site that displays it shows that it is a quality verified site from a more in-depth review than the initial approval process. Verified by the staff of PMOZ.org it represents value for money and superior customer service and satisfaction. It is not easy to get a quality seal as we have a strict Approval Policy.
