    So I was just checking out simple tags and installed it on my blog:

    http://www.hilaryshepherd.com/rantsnraves/

    If you create say 10 tags on one page, you have just created 10 pages all with duplicate content. Any ideas on how to address this?

    Maybe robots.txt. Try this:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /rantsnraves/tag/

    This *should* tell all spiders not to index what is is the tags directory

    But then what is the point of using the tags then? Will it offer any benefit?

    Also with a default install, will bookmarking sites like delicious automatically pick up the content? How do I get my posts indexed in delicious automatically?

    If you do not want to use robots.txt waybe you should use a tag.php in your theme and set it to only display the title of the post with a link out to the content instead of displaying all of the content on the tag page.

    Not quite sure about delicious though.

    I don't exactly get it. Do you have a blog that has it set up the way you say? So the tags will still show up? when they click on a tag what happens?
