Yahoo! Now Supports NOYDIR Meta Tag
Yahoo! has added support forÂ the Meta tag called â€˜NOYDIRâ€™, that offers webmastersÂ the ability to exclude titles and abstracts from the Yahoo! Directory.
“For pages with this tag, we will not use Yahoo! Directory titles or abstracts for your URL in web search results. This will grant webmasters the ability to participate in the Yahoo! Directory Submit program and benefit from inclusion in the Yahoo! Directory, while maintaining control over URL titles and abstracts in search. This will not have any effect on the Yahoo! Directory Search experience, which will continue to use the Yahoo! Directory and title abstract information.”
If you want to implement this Meta tag you can use one of these variations:
<META NAME=”ROBOTS” CONTENT=”NOYDIR”>
<META NAME=”Slurp” CONTENT=”NOYDIR”>
Yahoo! alsoÂ said, thatÂ a content re-indexing and ranking update will happen very soon.
