    Default WP/Meta Tag Question

    While looking at the "view source" on a few of my pages, I noticed that at the end of my key words there was "uncategorized" added to the end. It is only on pages inside the site, not on my homepage. Any way to get rid of it?

    Thanks

    Are you using a seo plugin like Allinone SEO? There is an option that includes categories as meta tags. Uncheck this option.

    Hmm. That should do it. That is the option I am speaking of.

    One workaround might be to make a category called "poker" or some other generic keyword that you would use for a META tag on all pages and make that the default category. That way "poker" would always show up as one of your meta tags.

    Not perfect, but not sure how to fix the problem if unselecting that option doesn't work.

    i found for one blog based site i had to completely delete the uncategorized category. i set an generic term like Nick suggested, and I had no further problems. I hope that helps.

    NOTE: Two seconds later, and it is completely gone! Yay!

    Make sure the plugin does NOT insert "noindex" robots tags on your category pages. That is SO annoying (and stupid).
