Prevent search engines from displaying DMOZ data in search results for your site


One source Google uses to generate snippets is the Open Directory Project. You can direct us not to use this as a source by adding a meta tag to your pages.

To prevent all search engines (that support the meta tag) from using this information for the page's description, use the following:
<meta name="robots" content="NOODP">


To specifically prevent Google from using this information for a page's description, use the following:
<meta name="googlebot" content="NOODP">


If you use the robots meta tag for other directives, you can combine those. For instance:
<meta name="googlebot" content="NOODP, nofollow">


Note that once you add this meta tag to your pages, it may take some time for changes to your snippets to appear in the index.
