Can content in a category be no-indexed by default? (3 posts)

    I'm considering making a site with a feature which will cause a whole lot of duplicate content. To avoid problems with Google, I'd like it no-indexed. Pressing "no-index" on every single post (were talking thousands and more), would be insane.

    My idea, if possible, was to make a parent-categori, and then some children categories where the content should go. How can I go around so everything in the parent category is being no-indexed?

    Since the site is going to be a community, everything has to be installed on the same domain, in order to use the same accounts on every feature.

    Thanks in advance, Peow.

    Pressing "noindex?"

    Why don't you use a plugin like Yoast SEO plugin or All-in-one SEO plugin? With a few tweaks, you can completely noindex every category and tag pages?

    My tech blog [extraneous link moderated] has Yoast SEO plugin installed. I have placed a "noindex,follow" tag on page/2/ of category and tag pages.

    Yea, well the /category/ page isn't a concern. It's the /category/page-here/ I don't want indexed. :)
    I'm using Yoast SEO for all my sites already :)
