Google stops supporting the noodp tag?

    Hi all,

    My site has been in both dmoz and google for a long time now, and after I put the noodp tag, G has always used the title description in its search results.

    A few days ago, things changed and now Google is using the dmoz description while the robots=noodp tag is still inserted.

    For those who dont know about noodp:
    normally prevents google from using the dmoz description.

    Has google changed its search results? Or could it be just a crawling error?

    Google at times will ignore the noodp tag and still use the directory description instead if it's more relevant to the query.
