New Duplicate Content Fix (3 posts)

    With the recent changes Google has made in regards to no longer following "no-follow" tags, what are the other workarounds to preventing duplicate content?

    I've started by removing the archives widget and also began using the <!--more--> tag for every post so the homepage of the blog only shows an excerpt.

    I still have categories being used and all that does is add /category/ to the URL when navigating to a page through the categories widget. I saw something about using a canonical tag but not sure this covers it.

    I've searched on Google and these forums but all of the information is outdated and recommends using the "no-follow" tag.

    Thanks for the resource. This change about no-follows no longer being recognized is very recent, within the last month or two (May of 09 at the earliest). I was looking for a specific way to deal with this within WordPress.

    Good read none-the-less.
