Should I noindex the wordPress Category?


Because Google uses the category to index my article.

Do you get traffic at category?

If no, do noindex.

If you can optimise it well, then index.

Yes you should set your categories to noindex to avoid duplicate content.

No. I’m not getting any traffic from category.

Then just no index it

Can you provide me step by step process how to do that? Because as I can check on Yoast.


These setting are already implemented long ago.

It’s good, it’s already done. No additional actions is required.

But still, Google Bots are indexing category. Is there any other option to do this?

If you are using Yoast SEO, go to the Categories Section and “no Index - category, tags”.
