For WordPress users who are SEO savvy you will already understand using noindex/nofollow or any technique to block sections of a website from being indexed is not a very good SEO idea and won’t be using the Yoast/All In One SEO damaging SEO noindex/nofollow features and won’t need the Stallion SEO plugin to replace them. I developed the not-index features (see later) and I don’t really use them, I want my entire WordPress site indexed, but if I don’t want something indexed, I don’t add links to it so have no need for not-index features.
For example WordPress by default creates monthly archives which are useless SEO wise, if you link to them they waste valuable link benefit, so don’t link to them (don’t add the monthly archive widget). All these archives exist, but I don’t link to them with a clickable link, so Google etc… does not know they exist:
http://stallion-theme.co.uk/2014/ – Yearly archive 2014 http://stallion-theme.co.uk/2014/01/ – Monthly archive January 2014 http://stallion-theme.co.uk/2014/02/ – Monthly archive February 2014 http://stallion-theme.co.uk/2014/01/28 – Daily archive January 28th 2014 http://stallion-theme.co.uk/2014/01/29 – Daily archive January 29th 2014
Every WordPress post you make generates a yearly archive, monthly archive and daily archive.
There are hundreds of these URLs on every WordPress site, as long as you don’t link to them (via archive widgets) search engines don’t know they exist. Even if Google finds the URLs and spiders/indexes them, who cares, if you don’t link to them you aren’t wasting valuable link benefit on them: Google tends to ignore orphan webpages (orphan pages are ones not within the sites link structure), it will spider and index them, but they tend not to rank for anything (links are important for ranking, no links = no rank).
