    Hello all,

    I am using All in One SEO plugin and it has a function called "Use noindex for Tag Archives".

    Should I check this box, and will this make my page ranking better in Google or worst??

    Thanks!!

    Check the box. Google dislikes the serving up of lots of duplicate content (like what you find on blog archives), so to improve the ranking for single posts and your main page, put noindex meta tags on the archives.

    Stopping Google from indexing archives is also good for users because it is very annoying to click on a Google search result and be taken to a huge archive page that you have to search through to find what you are looking for.
