    Hi friends,

    I have a simple question. I have a blog wherein i have written about 70 posts. Every post is linked to one or two categories has a number of tags (4-6). When I check for my indexed pages in google by searching site:"www.mysite.com", i get about 170 pages in search results which are believe are a combination of various categories and tags that link to the same post. Is this going to cause a duplicate content issue and will it hurt my SEO. Or is google smart enough to understand that it is a wordpress platform and thats how it works!!!!

    Please do let me know guys. Thanks in advance.
