    About 12 hours ago I posted in these forums asking for help with duplicate issues, I now see that for some reason some mod on a power trip has decided to just delete my post asking for help, why do you people keep doing this! I come here needing help and you just delete posts. no explanation as to why, no email nothing! I find it VERY VERY rude when I all I need is a little help!! How I am supposed to know what I have done wrong that you feel the need to delete posts You are not gods you know!

    So because I have not been informed as to why my post was deleted I now find myself re posting the same question, if I had been told what was wrong with the previous post then I wouldn't post again

    This is now the 3rd time I am posting this as for some reason the mods keep deleting, I would love to know what is so offensive about a question relating to duplicate content!

    So AGAIN I will ask the question!

    I am using seomoz to help tidy up one of the websites I am working on, seomoz is complaining of duplicate page titles, please find an example below.

    Title
    David Webb Driving School Adam passed 8th Feb 2010 » David Webb Driving School

    URL
    http://www.david-webb-adi.com/adam-passed-8th-feb-2010/adam-passed-8th-feb-2010/

    From what I could see, the second url is just and enlargement of the first url? Does this mean every time a blog/post is made it us duplicated twice as this is killing any seo practice!

    Suggestions or help on how to avoid this would be really appreciated. I would also be very interested in anyone who knows why this post might keep getting deleted, I have noticed this happens alot. I wonder if support do no know the answer, rather than saying they don't know they just delete the question thus saving face?

    For the mods on power trips I am now forced to copy this post into notepad so that I can repost if it gets deleted again as I have not been told what is SO bad about this post!

    [No bumping. If it's that urgent, consider hiring someone.]

  2. germinus - Please stop posting multiple topics and making multiple accounts. Your duplicate posts were deleted for being ... well ... duplicates :D That's all.

    You're actually making a lot more work for the forum volunteers, and distracting us from what we want to do: answer questions. I get that our forums are a little different from others. We don't like bumping, we ask people make their own topics. This can take some getting used to, but if you can work with us, we can help you out :) Making multiple accounts is something trolls and spammers do. I know you're not one, but it's like you left your blinker on for 10 miles on the freeway. You're annoying everyone.

    http://www.david-webb-adi.com/adam-passed-8th-feb-2010/ is a page (or possibly a post)

    http://www.david-webb-adi.com/adam-passed-8th-feb-2010/adam-passed-8th-feb-2010/ is the attachment page. It's actually slightly different (notice it says "WRITTEN BY DAVID WEBB. POSTED IN FULL SIZE IS 360×480 PIXELS.").

    It's not going to hurt your SEO.

    Now. Please stop making duplicate posts and accounts, okay?

    Is there anyway to stop the attachment page being created? Any many thanks for your reply, it is a shame it has taken almost 5 hours of hell to somebody to spend 10 seconds and 2 sentences, perhaps if that had been written to start with instead of just deleting then we could all be getting on with far more important work!

    Yes - don't link to either the File Url or the Post Url when inserting an image. Select "None" for Link.

    Ok that makes some sort of sense, I assume the only way to delete the Attachemnt pasges that have already been created it to delete all posts and then re create all posts and then select "None" each time a post is created. No way to just delete attachment pages? Ooh would editing the original post and selecting "None" for link delete the original attachment page?

    You can also use WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin - this has an option to redirect attachments to their parent page.

    Ah now thats interesting as I do use Yoast. Would that option have the same effect as deleting the attachment page, it sounds like it would!... Just had a look at Yoast options but couldnt find that option, will head over the the Yoast forums and ask them.
