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.

Delete Duplicates Posts In WordPress

The best way to delete all the duplicate posts on your WordPress website is by using Trash Duplicate And 301 Redirect.

Step 1: Install the plugin from plugin page.

Step 2: Activate the plugin

Step 3: Once activated, the plugin will show all the duplicated entries on your website. You can selectivity delete or do a bulk delete of the duplicated posts.

Plugin Features
