tl;dr - Please do not do this. Hop on over to the fix.
WordPress is a fantastic Content Management System (CMS), and is generally considered great when it comes to publishing content written for higher search visibility (I don't want to use the term SEO here).
What WordPress does as part of it's inherent design is for every post you publish which has a tag, or a category, it creates an archive page.
Let me explain.
You just published -
Which has a tag - apple, so WordPress will create a tag link like so -
http://www.website.com/tag/apple ... and in this new "archive" page, it will keep listing all the posts which are tagged as apple.
At a content level, the first link is content of one post, the second link on the other hand is a collection of posts.
Now WordPress also has pagination and typically tends to have 7 posts per page by default (correct me if I am wrong here), which means if you have 8 posts tagged on apple, then you will have two pages of archives -
The content on these pages are different. The links you shared seem to be of a post and a custom taxonomy (similar to a tag or a category).
However, if you are publishing a lot of posts which have tags rarely being re-used, then you would have pages that are being created which look similar to the post. You could do a couple of things to address the concern there -
- Ensure that your WordPress theme has a rel=canonical tag implemented.
- If you are using a sitemap generator plugin such as Yoast SEO, then you could even stop the tag links from being generated (and included in the sitemap)
- Remove the custom taxonomy
Hope this helps!
