How to deal with categories duplicate to tags?
I took over a website and I'm cleaning up things. I noticed there are a dozen categories and tags with the same name, i.e. there is a category and a tag both with the name "cats". I have already no-indexed tags to prevent bloat, thin content and duplicate content. My question is how to solve that issue completely? Should I redirect the tags to the respective category? My guess is that a redirection would work. Thanks in advance!
Assuming you are using WordPress as your CMS. Category URLs and Tag URLs are different. Also, the content of respective pages are different. So, there is no need to do anything even in case of same category & tag names.
