Hello dear Blogger!
Today I have a very complex question(s) and hope some of you are able to give me some suggestions.
I’m currently in the progress of setting up a new blog and I’m struggling with some things like categories, tags and navigation in term of SEO.
I’m blogging about news, reviews, howto’s, apps, etc. Let’s take as example different posts about Facebook.
- Post: What is Facebook
- Post: Facebook Page App
Tag: Facebook, App
- Post: How to create a profile on Facebook
Tag: Facebook, HowTo
- Post: Facebook closes it’s doors
Now, as you see, there are multiple Facebook posts in different categories with different tags. I could easily post all Facebook related posts in the Facebook category but won’t be able to fill those other categories which could help my visitors for a better navigation.I think, removing the “category” from the URL could help to prevent duplicates for the search engine. But what about tags? I’ve learned that you should avoid using the same name for a tag and a category. But it would be great to use it as the visitor will be able to see all posts belonging to the tag.Currently I have written 7 posts with the category in the URL so I would be able to change them as the blog is just a few days old.I hope you see what I’m trying to go.How did you managed this on your blog?Thanks for taking the time!CheersNick
