Noindex categories or tags? Any suggestions?

So, I am using All in One SEO and have left it at the default settings, which is to noindex categories but index tags. I’m not sure if this is the right settings I should be using however and I am concerned that I could be hurting my site down the road doing this.

Or should I index both tags and categories? I realize this is probably not the best idea since it can create duplicate content.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help!


You can get to WordPress posts various ways

Search engines will only include one - the one they “think” is best, unless you canonical-ize and / or noindex to your preference, if you have one.

IMHO, using the path that looks like it would make the most sense to visitors is probably your best bet.
