Follow Up on NOODP Tag: Both Titles & Descriptions Are Included

Jul 14, 2006 - 9:07 am 0 by

Chris did the write up on Google supporting the NOODP tag last night. But it appears there is confusion as to what the NOODP tag will do in Google. I have asked Vanessa Fox from Google to clarify, and she explained that the NOODP tag will work for both excluding the ODP title and the ODP description from displaying in the Google results.

So by adding <META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOODP"> or <META NAME="googlebot" CONTENT="NOODP"> you can tell Google not to use the ODP title and description in the results.

You can see the confusion on this at the various forum threads.
