#1095 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add noodp meta robots tag

Reported by: joostdevalk's profile joostdevalk Owned by: coffee2code's profile coffee2code
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: General Keywords:


We should add the following to basically every page on and maybe other sites too:

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

This will prevent Google from using the description in the Open Directory project for the page and instead grab the description of the current page. The only "problem" is that when we have more robots things we need to add, like for instance a noindex tag because of #1010, those should be merged as follows:

<meta name="robots" content="noindex,noodp">

Just curious, as I'd love to help on this one. What repo would I even look to for creating these changes? When you say "every page on", where is this source code publicly available to create a diff?

Most of is still closed source, so this probably isn't a good-first-bug after all.
