    12

    18 * Disallow indexing of subpages to your homepage, category pages, author pages and tag pages, to prevent duplicate content.
    19 * Prevent indexing of your login, register and admin pages by adding noindex robots meta tags.
    20 * Add noodp an noydir meta robots tags, allowing you to opt out of DMOZ and Yahoo! Directory descriptions.
    21 * Prevent Yahoo! and Google from indexing your feeds by adding a meta tag to their head-section.
    22 * Prevent indexing of just your comment feeds.
    23 * Disable author and date-based archives.
    24 * Nofollow category listings on single pages and posts to prevent PageRank leakage.
    25 * Nofollow your login, register and admin links, because they really don't need PageRank.
    26 * Enforce a trailing slash on archives.
    27 * Add the NOARCHIVE tag, to prevent archiving by archive.org or google-cache.
    28 * Edit your .htaccess and your robots.txt from within WordPress.
    29 * Assign robots meta tags to individual posts & pages.
    30 * Verify your site with Google Webmaster Tools and Yahoo! Site Explorer.
