Microsoft’s Bing search enigne provides document preview on Bing search results via "Hover Links" feature – which pops up extended snippets of text and links from the destination site when users hover over the search result, without having to click on the link. But what if you do not like the content which’s displayed by this feature?  Chris Moore says; to disable this preview, just add the following meta tag in the <head> section your page HTML:. Alternatively, if you would like to disable this preview for EVERY page on your site, you can do using the following robots.txt entry:. "It would be interesting to know whether removing this preview, actually increases traffic (because people need to click to find more), or decreases it (because other websites do provide the preview, so customers choose them instead)," explains.
