meta name="allow search" content="yes" do i really need this tag now? supafresh msg:3997240 8:03 pm on Sep 28, 2009 (gmt 0) I dont know if i really need to have both tags on my page.
<meta name="allow search" content="yes">
<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">
I think they do the same thing, i cant find anything clear on the web about what allow search does exactly.

You don't need either of those tags and never did. goodroi msg:3997669 1:30 pm on Sep 29, 2009 (gmt 0)
search engines assume they can follow everything they want to follow so you dont have to tell them to follow & index. bigcat1967 msg:4009789 1:52 am on Oct 20, 2009 (gmt 0)
You don't need them if you want your pages to be indexed - however, if you don't want a specific page to be indexed, then you'll need those tags and tell them that you don't want any bots indexing your page
