Google Webmaster Tools is reporting duplicate meta description errors for our blog. My understanding is that this is a well-known issue that is caused by blog pagination.

My question is: Can AIOSEO Pack Pro be configured to correct the problem of duplicate meta descriptions caused by blog pagination? And if so, what is the correct configuration?

For reference the blog site is http://www.onconference.com/blog/

Thank you for your reply. I am happy to provide more informaton as required and requested.

The readial for "Front Page Displays" is not present, nor the radial for "Your Latest Posts" in the reading option under settings.

The options you describe are covered in the help documentation for this section, but do not appear on my screen. I would be happy to provide a full screen capture but the forum does not allow that.

I am also open to providing a short term admin access if required.

For now here is my cut-and-paste of the Readings Settings below.

Reading Settings
Blog pages show at most 2 posts
Syndication feeds show the most recent 10 items
For each article in a feed, show For each article in a feed, show
X Full text
Summary

Encoding for pages and feeds = UTF-8. The character encoding of your site (UTF-8 is recommended, if you are adventurous there are some other encodings)

Hi Steve,

Thanks much. Knowing the standard behaviour is a great help.

I will investigate the theme settings (we are using "Thematic") and post my findings.

ps: Your last post seemed to be missing the meta description reference.

Indeed the theme being used was creating a description for each pagination of the blog. It could be the way we configured the theme or a default within the theme used. Easily located in the header and commented out.

// Creating the description
// thematic_show_description();

Again knowing the standard behaviour was a great help.

Thanks,

….Jerry
