    I'm working on setting up a new wordpress site and am setting up the categories for the site. My question is how do categories help or hurt SEO.

    For instance if I have a site on jet aircraft, and I have a video of an F-22, would it be best to only put it in 1 category, such as "jet aircraft videos", or is it helpful to actually put it in more than one, for instance if I also have a section on on the F-22, should I also have it linked to another category under that main category, possibly called "F-22 videos".

    So, will having it in both categories "jet aircraft videos" and "F-22 videos" help, hurt, or do nothing for my site SEO?

    Thanks all...

    I don't thing so. I have done this many of my sites i.e. putting the same post in multiple categories and everything was normal. It neither hurt nor helped :)
    Just make sure its reader friendly. Like putting a AH-64 video in F-16 category won't make much sense ;)

    Cheers.

    It's OK to have it in several categories. As suggested, male it user friendly. Other than that it depends on how well you did your keyword research - should use some as categories where appropriate or you could try the wonderwheel approach.
