MSN Allows Webmasters To Opt Out Of ODP Titles

by , Comments

Huge props to MSN Search for enabling Webmasters to tell MSN not to display a site's ODP directory title in the MSN Search results. Basically, some times when a site is listed in MSN Search results, they use the ODP (dmoz.org) directory listing's data, specifically the title and description from the ODP database. Now, MSN allows Webmasters to specify if that data should be used or not.

How do you implement it?

Place one of these tags with the other meta tags on your page.

<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOODP">

or

<META NAME="msnbot" CONTENT="NOODP">

Keep in mind, it may take a few weeks for MSN to notice this tag in your pages.
