    I'm using Wordpress and I'm getting duplicate stuff I think. The home page shows the content and the post page shows the same content.
    I don't want this affecting my SERPs, so am I supposed to no index, no follow my post?

    Will this affect my home page though? I definitely want my home page to be indexed :\
    Please help. Will give thanks + rep!

    Does your blog have a static format or is it like a normal blog in which is sorted from newest to oldest?

    Theoretically it will be recommended to make post page nofollow. But my personal experience says that google very well understands the format of wordpress and wont penalize the site for that.

    I don't think it will hurt you.
