Two meta robots - Is this ok?

We had an initiative to do a noindex,follow on a lot of duplicate pages.

It was done today, but it was added in addition to another robots meta:

<meta name="robots" content="noodp, noydir" />
<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow" />

Would this be ok?

Thanks

You can write it this way and avoid the potential confusion:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,follow,noodp,noydir" />

The bot may be clever enough to accept the data from two tags, but it might accept only the first or only the last. Put it all in one line to be sure there will be no problems.
