They are SEO prehensile tails.  You should feel free to ignore them.  

They stand for No Open Directory Project and No Yahoo Directory - both of these stem from the absurd idea ( in hind sight ) that you can include a listing of every website in a single website directory.  That is so 1992 embarassed
