Why Do I See a ‘noodp’ Meta Tag?

Last update: 16 August, 2016

The noodp tag prevents Google from using a DMOZ-meta description in search snippets. If you write a meta description, it’s highly likely that your goal is to have that meta description appear in search results. Therefore, Yoast SEO automatically adds the noodp tag whenever you’ve set a meta description template or manually set a meta description on the item.

If you need to remove the noodp tag on a specific post or page, please set the meta robots to None on the post or page, as shown below.
