    I'm having a problem with Google linking to the WordPress "tag" not the post itself, does anyone else have this problem?

    For example Google links to:
    http :// # www . domain #.com/tag/discount-shoes

    It should be linking to the post:
    http :// # www . domain #.com/discount-shoes

    It's getting pretty annoying as none of my posts are ranking as its linking to the tag of the post, not the post itself.

    (Edit: Had to break up URL's to post as Im new)

    Yes I get it fairly frequently. Sometimes Google just loves tags. I send more links to the actual post and the post will eventualy rank higher.
