Support » Everything else WordPress » SEO for WordPress – removing category

  • Hi all – one SEO question – I would greatly appreciate your help.

    I am setting up new WP blog and number of posts falling under two categories at the same time. Should I stop search engines from crawling one of these categories? As otherwise I may have issue with duplicated content? I am using permalink /category/post/.

    Thanks

    Dean

  • If the post is listed under 2 separate categories, are there 2 different URLs for the article? My experience has been that the actual article URL is the same regardless of how many categories it is listed in.

    I guess it might depend on the URL structure chosen.

    Yes. Actuall three or four, but only ONE is the ‘canonical’ URL, so that’s the one that Google etc will nab. No dupe content issues 🙂
