Question about categories (3 posts)

    I have a site called superofficialnews.com. I just realized that most of my posts that I've been putting up are defaulting to "uncategorized".

    I have categories of "news" and "funny news" but haven't been putting them in there for the past couple months.

    For SEO purposes, is it good for me to go back in categorize those properly? Or what is the purpose of categories anyway?

    Thanks!

    Well.. they categorize things.

    What are your permalink settings? If you have categories in your urls then yes, you would fry any google/bing indexing you had so far.

    My permalinks are setup correctly for SEO... I've been doing SEO for over 10 years... I'm just wondering what the point of the categories is and if that helps or not??

    If it does I'll go back through my 100 articles or so and hook it up... if it doesn't really do anything, then I won't bother
