Bing Meta NoPreview tag ( the enhanced page preview )


You might have noticed a gray, standing box with an arrow in it, just beside the search results in the Bing index. Not only the user is showed the search results but also some extra content, which becomes visible if you move your mouse over the gray box. This is called the Bing Document Preview (enhanced page preview).


Sometimes, if the preview refers to a result in Wikipedia, a search-field appears. We have seen many different preview boxes. Sometimes if shows a part of the content of a page, sometimes the description tag or it provides you with popular deep-links of a website. We have also seen pictures or images if it has to do with a Facebook page.

We presume the box is shown due to the click influence people have that use the Bing/MSN toolbar in their browser. This implies that the website administrator is unable to influence what is shown in this Document Preview Box. On the other hand, it provides information about what people click on, also when they click on a link of your competitor.

Not every website owner will like it. So it is possible to add a meta tag in the source of your website to disable that this Document Preview Box will be shown.


<meta name="msnbot" content="nopreview">

This tag disables Document Preview.

More and more search engines will support this tag. If you don't want any search engine to show this preview, block it by adding the following metatag :


<meta name="robots" content="nopreview">

 Make sure that you write no preview as one wo  nopreview !
