    I read someplace that using post tags will create extra pages on your blog in the eyes of the big G and that you will be penalized for dupe content. Just wanted to see what you all thought about that and if it is true?

    Thanks,

    post tags could end up creating a lot of thin pages over time and yes, if you use the full post in the tag pages, it will become duplicate post. Better to use excerpts of the whole posts.
