Forcing MSN not to use the DMOZ description - How?

I added the following to the site a week ago:

<meta name="robots" content="noodp" />

.. and now the site has zoomed straight to page one with MY Page Title - not the DMOZ title.

However, it's still showing the DMOZ description.

Is there any way to force MSN to use my description?

JackR,

Just in case your using the meta tag as shown above, you may want to remove that trailing slash if it's in your code. Otherwise you are doing it correct as MSN has recommended.

MSN says to use the following:


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

or

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

Thank you MLHmptn,

MSN has now re-indexed my site minus the DMOZ title and description!
