    Can we change Title on Dmoz?


    My website is approved on Dmoz but now we have changed the meta-tags (Title, Description) on my website. Can i also change it on Dmoz or edit my site on Dmoz?

    It is almost impossible to edit a DMOZ listing, but you can prohibit Google from using anything from that listing, e.g. description, by adding a robots META: <meta name="robots" content="NOODP">.

    You can go to Dmoz and click on 'update listing' and then submit a new title or make other edits to your sites listing. But the changes are of course subject to human moderation so there is no guaranteed time as to when and if it will be changed.

    As already said, use the update link at the top of the category page.

    If it's a commercial site, the title must be the company name without added strap line or promotional phrase. The description must comply with our editor guidelines, be factual and be non-promotional. Strings of keywords will be declined.

    Update requests show up prominently on our dashboards and most of us give them priority. Priority doesn't mean acceptance BTW.

    You can use the same link to request a URL change but be aware that we're unlikely to accept it if the original is still functional unless it has a manual or automatic redirect to the new one. (Yes, ODP listing hijacks are attempted)

    PS. We usually ignore meta tags because they so very rarely comply with our guidelines.

    Jim... Isn't the NOODP robots command quicker and surer?

    I guess that depends upon whether or not the website promoter's objectives are aligned with ours .

    • SEO_AM agrees : :) Some change title plus description more often than underwear. In that circumstance... best to NOODP.
