Thumbs up Duplicate Content Within Site From Multiple Blogging Arhive Formats

Background:
When we have a blog, we often times have 3 different types of archives.

1)Individual Entry
2)Monthly
3)Categories (eg holidays, famous sites, resturants).

As such, we will have the same content in at least 3 places. In my last site, google kept indexing my monthly archives which were very nonspecific, thus the user would have to scroll alot to find what he wanted...not good.

Question:
So I am considering only letting google index my individual entries. Do you other bloggers out there think this is a good idea? Or do you guys normally have the categories indexed?


Thanks,
Evan

What blogging platform are you using. I know there is a fix for this by disallowing stuff on wordpress.

If possible, my own quick approach would be to setup a robots.txt to exclude the duplicate content from being spidered.... while making sure proper linking was in place to the content that I wanted included.

Cool, figured it'd be something like that.

Thanks!
