I am new to posting on WebmasterWorld but I have been reading for a while.
I just came across this awesome thread on Vertical "pyramid" site structure: [webmasterworld.com
I am planning on tweaking my blog ([startupfreedom.com
]) so that it is structured in themes as instructed in that great post.

However, I have a question about duplicate content.
I understand how 5 levels can work on a forum:
Level 1: Index page
Level 2: Categories
Level 3: Sub categories
Level 4: sub - sub categories
Level 5: content pages
There is no duplicate content here because on the index, category, sub-category and sub-sub category pages there is no similar content. Most of the pages contain links to lower levels.
However, on a blog you can have the same post on the home page, the category page, the sub category page and the post page which is raging duplicate content.
I currently have no sub categories and have 'no follows' on the category and tag pages so that the posts only get indexed on the home page and the post pages, which now seems flawed after reading Brett's replies to the above post.
So how do you avoid raging duplicate content on a Wordpress blog in a vertical "themed" site structure as suggested in the post above?
Thanks in advance!
