Soon: No Yahoo! Directory directive

As a follow up to an earlier release about Yahoo’s support on the NOODP tag, it will now offer the feature to exclude Yahoo! Directory when extracting the description snippet on search results.

I have been asking about it when I posted the news on Yahoo’s NOODP support release. From a WebmasterWorld thread, there seems to be a buzz going on. Tim Mayer of Yahoo! says they are working on it but sought the advise of fellow forum members on what works best on handling the issue.

Hands down I prefer that everytime a NOODP tag is detected, it should exclude not only Open Directory but also also the Yahoo! Directory.
