My blog url is SEOHour.com
I’m using Copyblogger (free theme) on Genesis Framework. I’m not using any SEO Plugin on my blog since the beginning.
I’m facing “Duplicate Content” issue. Google has been indexing multiple pages (pagination 1,2,3,4…) of my blog. I’ve done the best possible SEO Setting under Genesis. But still facing the problem.
My setting is like Genesis —> SEO Setting
Apply nonarchive to the home page – Check
Apply noindex to Category archive – Check
Apply noindex to Tag archive – Check
Apply noindex to Author archive – Check
Apply noindex to Date archive – Check
Apply noindex to Search archive – Check
Apply nonarchive to Entire Site – Check
Apply nonarchive to Category Archives – Check
Apply nonarchive to Tag Archives – Check
Apply nonarchive to Author Archives – Check
Apply nonarchive to Date Archives – Check
Apply nonarchive to Search Archives – Check
Canonical Paginated Archives – Check
So Google is not indexing my Categories, Tags etc. but still indexed 10 duplicate pages from the Pagination. I’ve included an example URL below for reference.
How to prevent and getrid of these already indexed duplicate pages?
You could use GWMT to remove url’s from the index manually. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/59819?hl=en
But Google WMT doesn’t remove live URL. The page has to return 404 or 401 status code. Moreover the removed URLs last for 90 days and again appear in Google search after that.
Can you please tell me – Which file to add in robots.txt to avoid pagination issue (duplication)?
