    Hi,
    I would somehow like to aggregate one of my sites unto my other site without being penalized for duplicate content, and I have thought about being able to add something to the header to tell search engines not to index posts from a specific category, the problem now is, how? How can I tell a search engine not to index posts from a specific category?

    I bumped upon a hack of wprecipes
    http://www.wprecipes.com/how-to-disable-search-engine-indexing-on-a-single-post

    Which isn’t working either for a single post for me,
    any idea?

  • Hi thanks,

    the plugin isn’t working out for me that well, I don’t know why.
    If there is someone who has the same problem, I would like to share what I did.

    I created a custom single.php template for posts of some specific category, with a different header from the the usual one.

    Since my original header has a robots meta of follow, all. I made a new header specially for posts of the category that I don’t want to be indexed which has robots meta of noindex,nofollow,all. Teden, those posts are now not indexed anymore.
