    Hi everybody,

    I renewed my customers website 2 months ago and published. But still now on searching by the site name searching engines taking old meta and dmoz description on the search results.

    I think "I Must change old dmoz site description" and than google takes new meta info.

    What steps i must following?

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    To change a description, there is an "Update" link at the top of the page the site is listed on.
    You fill the form and an editor will review your request and make the changes necessary.
    But it is unlikely that the ideal search engine description will be acceptable under our Style Guidelines...
    Perhaps you are looking for the NOODP meta tag?
    :)

    As above, just use the update form (called "adres güncelle" in Turkish) on the page where the site is listed and put the extra information in the Reason ("Lütfen değişikliklerinizin niteliğini anlatın" in Turkish) field.
    Some examples (but you should fill the form in the language it's in): address changed, should be in xxx category - our new site is at this url: - new company name, please change to:
    An editor will check your request, and make any changes required. :)

    By "account", did you mean you have (or had) an editor account?

    Yes, exactly. And due to the voluntary nature of our project, we can't predict when that will be. Update requests are usually handled with priority, but it still has to be processed :)
