Google, Yahoo, or MSN may append DMOZ title and description
Getting your website listed on DMOZ will give it a boost in ranking in Google and other search engines due to DMOZ’s historic value and credibility by being publicly edited, like Wikipedia. In some circumstances, Google may append the title or description you are listed under in DMOZ in your search engine results.
