    I use semrush to audit my site and I get a lot of dupe meta desctiption issues that I'm not sure how to solve.

    Is there a setting here I should be changing? I have multiple authors. Each page after their main author page shows as dupe and every secondary category/tag page comes up as a dupe meta description as well.

    So for example an author would be

    author/name
    author/name/page/2/ (dupe)

    you will have to manually change the meta description on every page that have a duplicate meta description.
