WordPress SEO plugin (problems with archive subpages) (3 posts)

    I got dinged a couple months ago by Google Panda or at least that is what I am assuming since my blog dropped off the first page of Google and into the abyss.

    I have been trying everything to improve my rankings but nothing is working. One thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to deindex my archive subpages. That would be page 2-50+ of my category pages. (I do not want to deindex category pages)

    I use WordPress SEO by Yoast and I have checked the box to deindex subpages of archives but Google doesn't seem to care. I removed a bunch of URLs but of course the more I write, the more pages are created, and Google indexes them. I am worried about the duplicate content issue which I know is a big part of Google Panda.

    Should I uninstall WordPress SEO and re-install? I don't really know code but I need these subpages to be noindexed by Google!

    Please give me a link to your site so that I can see what your robots.txt is currently saying. In a nutshell, you can just edit your robots.txt file so that it disallows search engine access to your category pages.

    Have you looked at and/or posted on the plugin's own support forum here?
