[resolved] link rel=canonical on calendar archive page (2 posts)

    I have a blog which is updated once a day. There are only a few cases where a day is skipped or where there is more than one posts per day.

    The Canonical URL Generation option produces canonical tags for both date archive and the single post. But in my case both pages are identical. How can I disable the canonical tag for the date archive.

    http://www.myblog.com/greatarticle (posted 3/14 2013) and
    http://www.myblog.com/2013/03/14 both have a canonical flag and have identical content.

    Have you simply considered using the noindex manager for the category page (to prevent the duplicate content from getting indexed) as an alternative using the Meta Robot Tags Editor?

    If so, then simply change the global rules using Meta Robot Tags Editor >>> Default Values >>> where you can prevent indexing of:

    Administration back-end pages
    Author archives
    Blog search pages
    Category archives
    Comment feeds
    Comment subpages
    Date-based archives
    Subpages of the homepage
    Tag archives
    User login/registration pages

    or, for fine-grained control, you can select the Meta Robot Tags Editor >>> Categories >>> then choose nofollow to the one in question instead of worrying about a canonical issue.
