What is the highest page rank a site has had without a listing in DMOZ? I am just curious?

didn't have a dmoz listing a few months ago, but does now.

I was able to get up to a 6 without DMOZ, i've been trying to get my site in there for the past year but can't seem to get anyone to respond. I submited my site about a year ago and waited and waited lol but nothing happend.
I just recently wen't to their forums and had to re-submit my site again yesturday. Kinda sucks that i have to wait another 6 months to even ask about the status.

Sorry to say that http://www.statcounter.com has been in ODP since early 2002.

UMMM what the hell does a DMOZ listing have to do with pagerank? Except for the natural passon of pagerank that would happen with any other site, A PR 5 link from DMOZ is the same a PR link from any other site with the same weight.
PR is not a function of "who" links to you, its "how much" weight they have to contribute

weird, the green book on my (google) toolbar didn't light up for it... any idea why that could be?

But in one of your articles on the site you mention that DMOZ will help with your sites PR, or did I read it out of context?

it helps, but it doesn't have some sort of dramatic influence over your PR.
the thing about dmoz is, the data is copied over to dozens and dozens of other sites.
getting into dmoz is essentially like getting a free link from every one of those pages- eventually. it may take a while for them all to update.
but none of those listings are more powerful than what you'd get on different pages with the same PR.

Gettign into DMOZ means getting into the google directory, and I think AOL too (could be wrong), not to mention a bunch of other smaller ones. DMOZ allows you to use their raw data. Lots of localized directories use only the data local their their demographic. This helps for poeple who localize their keywords (like Arizona Web)
I wish I had a friend in DMOZ who would just get me listed already!

having a listing in dmoz is more benificial for your google ranking then upping your page rank (but it does count!)
DMOZ is a big problem for webmasters from sites with rare keywords. Every one of those DMOZ copies passes on themed PR to the linked sites.
If you have a new site that is not in DMOZ.... perhaps DMOZ doesn't have an editor for that category any more so you'll never get into DMOZ... then it's much harder work to get those themed links that will push you to number 1.
I'm speaking from experience of a hobby site. I find competitive sites so much easier to work with.
