Google Duplicate Content Problems

David Naylor posts about how to prevent Google’s newish duplicate content filter issues from hurting WordPress blogs:

first what you need to do is get rid of those Urls that look like this: and replace them with .. but Matt.. what you must do is have a robots.txt .. in that robots. txt file add this little line in ..

User-agent: *
Disallow: /?p

If you already have a bunch of links into the ?p pages then you would probably need to do other things as well, but if your blog is fairly new it is fairly straightforward and a good call to block search engines from accessing the ?p pages.
