Should allow ARCGIS online adminstrators to add custom code to our ARCGIS online homepage to make it searchable on the Google Seach Engine.

YES! I was asked to do this and there is CURRENTLY NO WAY to promote your Hosted ArcGIS Online Aplications to Google, Yahoo or any other Search tool. The Tag & Descriptions that you add for (Everything) are only for searching within ArcGIS Online. Even then If I go to ArcGIS online I Cannot Search "City of <Blank>" and return the homepage of that city. 

You literally have to guess the city's URL or have it linked through their homepage. Allow us to enable Google Bots to crawl our Orginization.
