Joomla category blog vs duplicate content

Post by iDanny » Thu Jun 20, 2013 1:13 pm

Hi,

In many Joomla websites I run, I have their blog sections running as standard Category blog menus which present the title, teaser, teaser image and read more link to each article (along with pagination). Obviously, the read more links to the full blog post.

I read somewhere that this could be considered as duplicate content ?

Any thoughts on this ?

Yes you are right iDanny. You can fix this using implementing rel="canonical" tag in blog section.

As a last resort you can manually specify the posts of duplicate content in robots.txt, so google and other search engines will not crawl (using deny function)

Could you please explain exactly where to implement rel="canonical"
where is the "blog section" ?

Is this in the menu manager, I have no idea..?
