    Hi all - one SEO question - I would greatly appreciate your help.

    I am setting up new WP blog and number of posts falling under two categories at the same time. Should I stop search engines from crawling one of these categories? As otherwise I may have issue with duplicated content? I am using permalink /category/post/.

    Thanks

    If the post is listed under 2 separate categories, are there 2 different URLs for the article? My experience has been that the actual article URL is the same regardless of how many categories it is listed in.

    I guess it might depend on the URL structure chosen.

  3. If the post is listed under 2 separate categories, are there 2 different URLs for the article?

    Yes. Actuall three or four, but only ONE is the 'canonical' URL, so that's the one that Google etc will nab. No dupe content issues :)
