Explanation Of Directives

These are the directives/tags that have been marked/used in Custom Robots Header Tags above.

  • all: There are no restrictions for indexing or serving. This directive is the default value and has no effect if explicitly listed.
  • noodp: noodp means No Open Directory Project. The benefit of using noodp tag is that you can avoid search engines from choosing random description. This affects the SEO of your webpage. The Noodp tag inform Google what is relevant for the page.
  • noindex: Instructs web-robots to not index pages in search engines, and don’t show/list them in search results. From SEO point of view Blogger’s search pages are unnecessary to be listed on search engines. That’s why in “Archive and Search pages” section we have ticked noindex, means Search Engines will not list URLs containing “/search/”.  This is an example of a URL containing search “https://www.example.blogspot.com/search/label/Fashion”.
