[New Feature] Choosing Multiple Categories 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
I would like to be able to selected multiple categories for any given post, as I can in Wordpress.

Rght now in ABS I can select only one category. If I want it to go under more than one, I have to find the post in Wordpress and edit the categories there.

Not a big deal, but it would be nice.

Steve, that isn't a good practice. To every category you assign, you're going to have another page created with same content which will be seen as duplicate in the eyes of Google right? Duplicate content across the same site is not good.

Thanks for that tip. I hadn't considered that. Unfortunately, I've a week's worth of posts, on two different blogs (with more scheduled for publication in the coming days), and most of them are currently assigned to 2 or 3 different categories apiece. Plus, I have 6 to 12 tags on each one.

I guess I keep thinking about human visitors and not as much as I should about the search engines. My WP theme uses my categories as major headings at the top of the page, so I figured I was supposed to make them maximally comprehensive.

My niche is ebook readers, like the Kindle or the Nook. So if a post discusses, say, the merits of the Kindle vs. the Nook vs. the Kobo ereader, it seemed like it would only be right to assign it to the Kindle category AND the Nook category and the Kobo category. A visitor who interested in one of those three readers would then be able to find the post by clicking on "his" category.

But given your comment, perhaps I'll stick to one category per post going forward.

Do you think this is enough of a concern (the duplicate pages in Google's eyes) for me to go back and strip older posts of some of their categories?

Please reply again and give me your good advice on this. I am liking the ABS software very much, and after just a little over a week of starting my blog in this niche, I am averaging around 50 or 60 cents per day per site (I'm building related sites as subdomains). I see a real possibility now of reaching that $1/blog goal and scaling up by creating more blogs. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize this!

Thanks,
Steve
