How to Delete and Redirect Duplicate Posts In WordPress

In one of my websites, I did a bulk import from a CSV. Unfortunately, the bulk import created a lot of duplicated entries. Since there were many posts, I could not delete it manually. As you know, duplicate content is something Google doesn’t like.  So I wanted a way to delete all the duplicated imports.

After a little research, I found this awesome plugin which did the work for me.

Note: This plugin worked flawlessly without corrupting any other functionality on my website. However, I would strongly suggest you take backup and do a small test before performing bulk deletes on production websites.
