I had the following permalink structure in my WordPress blog:


I changed it to:


Everything is fine as I am using the permalink finder plugin, which redirects the posts to new address. But, the issue is that Google Webmaster Tools shows too many duplicate meta descriptions as follows:

  • /category1/postid/
  • /postid/

Can anyone help me how to solve this issue?

this is corrent; WordPress generated always an permalink for each post with category and tag; you must dofollow this for the bots on your robots.txt, like Disallow: */?tag=* or Disallow: /category/*/*
