Hi All,

Wonder if any of you can shed any light on something for me.

I have several clients of mine who are getting quite successful results, and everything is going well.

However, recently we've noticed that in the SERPS that instead of their site coming up with their full TITLE tag (which would contain their keywords etc) it now comes up with just their company name, as it would if it were coming up in DMOZ.

Does this actually happen... DMOZ results coming up as the site reference and not showing the Title tag?

If anyone can help it would be massivley appreciated - thanks for looking!

Yes. You need to add the  NOODP robots meta tag[/hr] to your home page.

Thanks Jill,

So something like:

<META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="NOODP">
<META NAME="SLURP" CONTENT="NOODP">
<META NAME="MSNBOT" CONTENT="NOODP">

Would help do this for all?

I've ready that using them like:

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

Would cause them to ignore the last one, in any case.

Which type have you used for success?

Thanks :-)

<meta name="robots" content="noodp, noydir"> should be all you need.

Untrue. More crazy myths.

Using them that way is perfectly fine.
