AOL used DMOZ listings, but "tweaks" results according to what they consider relavant (title, description, URL and where the keyword(s) appears in these). There's no way the editor can have control over ALO search results other than to figure out how they (AOL) determin relavancy, and then change his title and description at DMOZ to target this. He could also change YOUR listing to "un-target" AOL's relavancy ratings.

Ok, so yeah, he has a lot of control *L*
