A DMOZ listing is valued highly by Google and this gives you an edge over your competitors. Since DMOZ is a .ORG website, it is a high authority website that boosts your Google ranking score.

Here are some tips on how to get listed in DMOZ:

1. Professional-looking website.
You will give the DMOZ editors a good impression if your website looks professionally designed. This will increase your chances of getting a spot in DMOZ.

2. Original and quality content
Make sure that your website contains quality content that is relevant to its theme and target niche.

3. Business/Personal Contact Information
Give your visitors a way to contact you. Adding an email address, phone number, and business address will definitely help.

4. Proper and relevant category:
Submission to a proper and relevant category is important because DMOZ editors reject submissions on improper or incorrect categories.

5. Follow DMOZ Guidelines
Be sure to follow the DMOZ guidelines on "Site URL", "Title", and "Description" text. Following guidelines help in getting a DMOZ editor's approval.

6. No broken links and no spelling errors
Check your site for dead or broken links. You don't want to annoy DMOZ editors and visitors with "Page Not Found" error pages. Check also for spelling errors in your page content before submitting your site to DMOZ.

7. Website Usability
A website's ease of use will be a factor for DMOZ listing inclusion. DMOZ editors will be impressed by the time spent on your website's user experience design and subsequently your website will get their approval.

8. Lots of Patience
Patience is a virtue. DMOZ Editors receive several website URL submissions every day. It may take weeks or several months before your submission is approved by a DMOZ Editor.
