SEO implications (5 posts)

    I've been looking for a plugin like this for a client, but I was curious if it prevents bad SEO karma. I'm not an SEO whiz, but I know duplicate content can get pretty hairy (http://www.seomoz.org/learn-seo/duplicate-content), so I wanted to see if this plugin did anything to take that into account. Thanks!

    For your stated reason and also since there does not appear to be a good solution for syndicating comments between broadcast posts, I think using the "Override child post permalinks" option makes sense.

    In my version, it seems to be overriding it with a ?p= based permalink -- I wonder if there's a way to use the pretty date-based one instead.

    I'm not familiar with how the buzzword SEO works.

    v1.5 will have fixed permalinks.

    First off, Love the plug-in!

    Although you can override the permalinks on child posts, it would also be nice to show the post without leaving the site that the child post is on. Is there any way to have the plugin change the canonical url of the child pages to point to the parent page? That way you can have multiple posts without negatively impacting SEO.

    Link for reference on canonical urls:

    Thanks again for a GREAT plugin.

    Nevermind, I figured out how to check if the post is a child post and if so to change the canonical URL to the permalink of the parent post.
