Support » Plugin: Broadcast » Blog syndication with noindex to avoid duplicate content.

  • I need a plugin like this to create a monthly generic business blog post that can be distributed to my 30 client sites at once They will be creating their own posts as well, which can be SEO-friendly. But, I want the posts I create to be no-index because I don’t want their sites punished for the identical, duplicate content.

    Is there an option built into this plugin that can allow me to noindex the posts I create? If this is not built in, do I have any other options? Such as setting up a category that will be a no-index category or setting up a user profile in each of their admins where I can post from that user profile and anything attributed to that user will be posted as a noindex?

    I believe Yoast’s WordPress SEO plugin can set the noindex flag of posts. Broadcast will happily broadcast the SEO fields at the same time as the post.

    Thanks, Edward. I’m assuming that option in Yoast would noindex all of the posts, which I wouldn’t want to happen. I want mine (the syndicated ones) to be noindex, but theirs (my clients) to be indexed. Am I correct with that assumption? Hopefully not, but if so…

    …do you have any other solutions come to mind?
    Perhaps setting up a category that will be a no-index category or setting up a user profile in each of their admins where I can post from that user profile and anything attributed to that user will be posted as a noindex? Or something else I’m not thinking of?

    I can’t really say, since I never noindex my posts.

    Maybe a category with a special category-xx.php file that displays the posts with the noindex property, as you say?

    I’m not sure what the easiest solution would be, other than a plugin that marks things as noindex.

    If nothing else, then maybe a custom plugin will have to be coded?
