SEO: WordPress 2.7 comment pagination causes duplicate content

January 12, 2009 | 1 Comment

Here’s an important heads-up for all the SEO-conscious bloggers out there: the new comment pagination feature in WordPress 2.7 apparently produces duplicate content, which is frowned upon by search engines like Google. Quick Online Tips reports:

When I checked my Google Webmaster tools today, it notified me of hundreds of duplicate title tags and duplicate meta descriptions pages on our site which were not there before. A quick look at this duplicate content issue revealed it was caused by multiple comment pages.

By default, a WordPress 2.7 installation will break the comment list into multiple pages if they exceed 50 comments. You can change this setting and other comment-related options by visiting the Discussion page in the admin panel.
