Live.com ignores changes in <meta name="description"> and uses outdated description from dmoz.org RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I updated the stuff in <meta name="description"> several years ago, live.com still uses the old data though. Does it grab the description from dmoz.org (where my site is listed with the old one)?

  • Hi,

    It can do that from time to time. If you don't want that to happen in the future, I suggest using the NOODP meta tag.
