Add NOODP to Robots, Problems with ODP Description

  • Hello,

    I’m having a problem with the meta description that’s affecting my pages. Google is taking a text from my footer to show as meta description in the serp.

    – My page: https://ladodigital.es/
    – Search term to see the description that google shows: LadoDigital

    I have researched and everything is set up correctly on my page. I can only think of one thing:

    1. Block the description of the Open Directory Project, adding to the robots the label: NOODP.

    I couldn’t find this anywhere in Math Rank.

    Thanks.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    I have inspected your page source and Rank Math is generating the correct meta description as shown below:
    Meta info
    It may take sometime for Google to update the new description on its cache, searching for your site using site:https://ladodigital.es also shows the right description.

    I can suggest that you take a look at the following filter that you can use on your theme to target a certain page and add the Noodp & other robots meta attributes from your theme’s functions.php file:

    /**
     * Allows filtering of the robots meta data.
     *
     * @param array $robots The meta robots directives.
     */
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/robots', function( $robots ) {
    	return $robots;
    });

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Once I put that function in the functions.php file of my theme, I don’t know where I can place the NOODP tags
    Could you be more specific with a example?

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Here is an example that you can use on your theme’s functions.php file to target the homepage:

    
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/robots', function( $robots ) {
    	if ( is_front_page() ) {
    		$robots['index'] = 'index';
            $robots['max-snippet'] = 'max-snippet:-1';
    		$robots['max-video-preview'] = 'max-video-preview:-1';
    		$robots['max-image-preview'] = 'max-image-preview:large';
    		$robots['noodp'] = 'noodp';
    		
    	}
    	return $robots;
    });
    

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
