I have a legacy tag in my companies homepage that says <meta name="robots" content="all">
Would changing it to <meta name="robots" content="NOODP,all"> work?
I know that the tag is useless but I hate to change anything unnecessarily when we are owning our industry for our terms.

Is placing this tag on the home page sufficient or does this tag need to be on all pages?

If it's useless, why are you worried?

I'd be nice if that tag, or another one (NYD or something), would let us get rid of the Yahoo Directory listing's description. If they're doing this, I have a bit more hope they may allow that in the future.

Dito on the Yahoo directory - getting rid of this would be great as making changes to Yahoo directory is almost as bad as changing ODP listings.

Since this is on the WebmasterWorld front page, can somebody explain this in English?
|If these are found on your pages Yahoo will not consider ODP titles or abstracts as candidates for your URL in search results. |
OK, I figured out that ODP is "Open Directory Project", or the DMOZ categorized list of websites.
Now, what the heck does the rest of that sentence mean?

Yahoo sometimes displays the Title and Description from the listings in ODP in their search results rather than the meta title and description.
This option will allow you to say no to that.

Will adding this tag affect Google or other robots' results?
