I had filed a DMCA against a website that had stolen my image. My review status shows approved but even after 2 weeks, the links were not removed from google search. While searching the image, it shows that In response to a complaint that we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page, but I still see the designated URL at the top of search results.

Whatever you do, if there is a cancellation option, do not cancel it. Let the request go un-interrupted through the removal process.

There is no timeframe available as to how long it takes to process a request.

  • bro it takes time, maybe your competitor change its permalink! The Same thing is with my manga website. My competitors uses my own translated manga and when i am going to submit DMCA take down notices. it takes almost 20 days for the removals of that submitted url.
