We have added one blog with multiple categories to our site. The blog page is accessible through our main navigation.
We want to use the “Category Only” option in Alloy to build out a separate page each of our blog categories with headlines and additional content to support each of our blog categories in greater detail.
Our question is - are we going to be penalized, or is it just a bad idea (practice) to have the same blog post accessible in two locations on the same web site. The first time would be on “the original blog page,” with all its categories. The second time would be on each of our blog’s separate category pages that we are adding.
- Do we have anything to worry about?
- Should we do anything differently?
- Should we be adding 301 redirects?
- When do Rel=“canonical” come into play? (Don’t know much about this option)
We have been doing a lot of reading on the above subject of duplicate content and we must say we are left confused.
Thank you for the help
