I recently consolidated 3 plugins, All In One SEO, Robots Meta and RSS Footer, by using Joost de Valks new WordPress SEO plugin. It has been a great asset but I have noticed a consistent problem across all sites that I have updated, the tag archives are being indexed.
I have selected for them not to be indexed but I am wondering if because I am selecting them to be turned off within WordPress SEO after importing the options from Robots Meta it is making this selection null and void.
I never had this problem before when using Robots Meta, in fact it worked great, but now that I am using WordPress SEO on all my sites I am now finding I am having to fix sites that are getting a dupe content penalty for these tags.
So my question may be more directed to the plugin author to establish why it is that when even having selected for a tag archive not to be indexed, they are being so regardless.
Just to reiterate when I install the plugin on a site I import the options and data from the three plugins. Then when I go into WordPress SEO none of those options appear to be active or selected. So I am just wondering that by me re-selecting them I am in fact overriding the previous plugins options of having them switched on.
