I have seen that description of my site <a>http://www.mywot.com/de/scorecard/trends-im-web.de</a> is wrong. I can not recognize how the words were collected.
I have verified my site after login and now I see
"You must have verified yourself as an owner of this site and have an active certificate to edit the details on this page"

Does it mean that I have to buy WOT certificate to change my description?
Thank you for your help in advance.

Yes

Yes you do, but you can always change the description of the site itself in meta.

No of course not. It seems that you have to verify your site as yours (via profile).But the description itself is updated regularly. I´m sure Timo or Sami will help you quickly

The verification via profile

The verification via profile is done. I see a text field to enter description, but I do not have any button to save.
Should I write a message to Timo or Sami to ask for change?

I have verified a second domain [url=http://www.waschmaschine24.com t=_self]waschmaschine24.com[/url], that do not have any description. But I am missing a save button here too. So may my user account be blocked?

Description

The scorecard obtains the website's description dynamically through the information supplied by the meta tag

from within the site's index page. In the event that no description meta tag exists, nothing is displayed. This information is updated every 60 days.

An example of a description meta tag:


Code: Select all

<meta name="description" content="WOT is a Free Internet Security addon for Firefox and IE that warns you about online scams and risky websites that try to deliver malware or send spam." />
[/i]

If you remove the meta name=description then the "old" site description remains until:
  1. a meta name=description is appended to the landing page's HTML
    OR
  2. a site is first verified then description is editable by the domain owner.
If you still have problems, contact [url=http://www.mywot.com/support/feedback/problem t=_self]Support -> Problem with website -> Other[/url]

It should be possible to change the description without buying a trust seal. We'll take a look at this on Monday.

I was wondering this too. There's a typo in the description for my site and I would really like to change it. I want to change the whole description anyway even if that typo wasn't there.
