    Hey, there I have seen some WP bloggers using the following setup
    on their blogs and would need some help to configure it the same way, what I found was this : When I put in search term on Google to display my blog like for example this one in the search terms:

    "Do You Know The One Source Where You Can Find A Profitable Niche" (without qotes) I get following result displayed in Google :

    "TITLE WHICH WAS ENTERED FOR TO SHOW AS ABOVE"
    "Any Description of the custom post...."
    hxxp://www.gurutracking].[com]/do-you-know-the-one-source-where-you-can-find-a-profitable-niche.html

    you should use permalinks %postname% for the posts in the permalinks to get post links look like this
    but the other stuff, I could not figure out how to configure right and need serious help here:

    I am using Platinum SEO, and Ultimate SEO

    But when I post a new post on my WP blog . there seems I messed around with either the indexing, or I don't know, what I did wrong, as doing the testing, to the post I created, putting in the words, I search for in google, my main blog page shows up in the search results different instead of the

    MYTITEL OF THE POST / WHATEVER
    MYDESCRIPTION OF THE POST....
    "hxxp://blognameurl.com/mycustom-postnameurl"

    I get only this

    MYMAINBLOGTITEL
    MYDESCRIPTION OF THE MAIN BLOG.
    "hxxp://mymainblogurl.com"

    then I read somewhere this has something todo with duplicate content, since google sees your main blog and thinks
    the same stuff is already there so it wont display the URL of the custom post the one you want to show , COOL no m infact how stupid is this - to figuring out how to get rid of this I am searching now for days to get a solution and right answer ...

    So I read somewhere to fix this you shall install the robots meta plugin ticked, almost all noindex settings and still no improvements , what confused me the most is the "subpages of homepages" box to be noindex, so to tick this box, I find this totally confusing as how will google find my post pages and show in the search results when the subpages of homepage blog is noindex ? Can anyone please post the best and correct settings. on how I can achieve my blog gets the results as described above. like this gurutracking blog ? I need to get this what do I need to change or set whem I would start from scratch to get , my blog show like desired ?

    The result shown in google shall become

    MYTITEL OF THE POST / WHATEVER
    MYDESCRIPTION OF THE POST....
    "hxxp://blognameurl.com/mycustom-postnameurl"

    Please this is really making me troubles and I am trying to fĂ­gur
    out what I did wrong but cannot fix , I am searching for a solution to this since days now ,....

    Thanks so much
