I tried switching over to iNove so I could hide the global tag links on the bottom of my posts. I unchecked “show tags on posts” under Theme Options, but the global tags still appeared on all of my posts. How can I be rid of them?
Category and tag listing in the posts area will lead to the wordpress global tags pages. The only way to have those links go local (to your blog pages) is to either set your blog to block search engines or set it to private under settings > privacy.
The global tags pages have a huge amount of search engine juice, and having your posts appear on those pages means you share in that juice and it increases your page rank with the search engines. Also, many people get a lot of new readers coming in from the global tags pages.
