comment Session based redirect acceptable for search engines?
Yup, it's not an ideal setup, so there isn't really a 'nice' fix that covers all the bases.

comment Session based redirect acceptable for search engines?
I did wonder about a canonical, normally I'd say yes, but is it really a good idea to list the canonical URL as one that 302's to another? I'm thinking not. It all depends a bit on whether or not the OP wants the global home page indexed.

comment How to properly use Google Webmaster Tools (for “non-www” instead of “www”)
+1. One minor clarification: creating a CNAME does not create a redirect, the OP will probably want to create a server side redirect as well

comment Redirecting all 404 pages in Wordpress is not good SEO, but what is?
Can you provide more information about your site and/or the URL? Why would users post links to non-existent posts?

comment How do I properly deal with duplicate content when showing the latest content from my blog on a main page?
Yes, no-index would do it too, but again this makes it tricky for someone to find just your blog via. search engines (rather than a specific post). Regarding the duplicate content, I'm saying this won't cause any problem, the only thing it affects in this case is what URL the search engine links to. Based on what you said, it sounds like the XML sitemap solution would be your best course of action.

comment Nofollow: a good thing for SEO or not?
From what you've said, yes, but if you can provide a bit more info about what your users are posting then perhaps we can advise further.

comment Nofollow: a good thing for SEO or not?
It depends a bit what you mean by the links being 'sent by your users' though. If these links appear on your site automatically in content created by your users (e.g. like links in questions or comments posted on this site would), then you would use nofollow on these links, as they are untrusted, which fits into point 2 of John's answer.

comment What to use for rapid PageSpeed analysis — Google Insights or Chrome extension?
For that URL I get 76 from the extension, 73 online. Might you be logged in to the site and seeing slightly different content to the tool?
