[resolved] Extra SEO Options? (6 posts)

    I was wondering in the Extra SEO Options section. Should I enable NOODP and NOYDIR to the robots meta tags?

    What does this do? Thanks again

    They instruct Google not to display data (titles, descriptions), which may exist on dmoz.org and Yahoo Directory for your content, in the search results, but use the ones you provide in your content's metadata.

    Hope this helps

    Generally, it is a good idea to add them to the robots meta tag, so as to have as much control as possible about what info appears in the search results.

    You also need to keep in mind that NOODP and NOYDIR make sense if you have listings in DMOZ and Yahoo Directory (the latter is a paid service )
