Yes, go to the category in which the website is listed and click "update listing" at the top of the page.
Tell us what yout think should be changed and why this should be done.
But plaase, do not try to write ttile and description full of marketing hype. It will be rejected.
A DMOZ editor will look at the update request and check the website to see if the request is valid.

I need an old link removed. We recently moved our site and I did add a new submission for this link. However, I need this old link removed from the directory so that we do not violate the duplicate content rule.

The new URL is
<url removed>

The old site listing is:
<url removed>

I realized now I should have used this forum vs making new submission....sorry for the confusion.

Hello,
I submitted an edit via the "update listing" about a week ago. Any idea how long it usually takes for edits to be made? Any way to check on the status?

Thank you,
Teresa

Update requests are usually reviewed fairly quickly ("quickly" being a very subjective term, I know). Usually within several weeks on average. But remember that the review is still dependant on someone choosing to review update requests in that category. And remember also that "reviewed" doesn't necessarily mean "accepted". Processing update requests involves reviewing the site and comparing what the request asks for (change of title/description, URL, or category) with the directory's guidelines for that particular site.

Any way to check on the status?
No, there isn't. We stopped providing that kind of information here on this site several years ago.

Thank you for the information. Any other advice on how we might facilitate the update would be appreciated. We've found that the incorrect information regarding our website is confusing people.

Thanks again.

This is a volunteer organisation and we have no means of facilitating/expediting anything.

If you are unhappy with the description shown by search engines, you might want to investigate using the NOODP metatag.

To avoid the temptation to keyword stuff or 'commercialize' the title and/or description - it is possible (although unlikely) that the reviewing editor will miss the pertinent information in the request when he/she reviews it.
