Hi, I have the latest version of wp and all-in-one-seo.
I’m trying to figure out search results.
We are noticing a problem.
sometimes rss feeds and category pages for something could be higher than the actual article.
Look at this search result:
I would expect this article to appear as number one
Instead, I see my wp category as the number one search result, then I see the RSS feed, but no original article. I also saw that “See more results from teleread.org” contains this article as well as others.
until today I had unchecked,
Use noindex for Categories:
Use noindex for Archives:
But now I checked them again. I’m hoping that will solve the problem.
1. why is the RSS feed ranked so highly?
2. when you index categories and archives, does google deemphasize individual posts and pages? Why?
