Prevent Duplicate Content Posts in WordPress Blogs


The most common trick among WordPress bloggers is to block search engine bots from indexing duplicate content by disabling the entry routes through robots.txt. The robots.txt method works but there’s another simple method - switch from the_content() WordPress template tag in multiple post view template files to the_excerpt(). The post tag will reduce the content to excerpts, thus minimizing duplicate content. Thanks Lorelle.
