    Hi Joost…

    I feel silly asking this, but if our site is organized by category, then we should keep our category archives indexed? NOT checking “Subpages of archives and taxonomies” or “Category archives”?

    Our SEO company is pointing out duplicate content between our original posts and the category archives, and says we can safely noindex the category archives, even though the site is organized that way – because it will add essentially add strength to the original posts.

    That makes sense enough, but seems like one of those things that once you DO it, it’s a BIG deal! 🙂

    Thanks,

    Angie

    Hi Angie,

    if you’re showing excerpts, usually you can keep them indexed. If you’re showing full posts, I’d noindex them.
