I am receiving 72 Duplicate Titles and 72 Meta Descriptions. All the listed links are from blog pagination.

Example:
https://daveroessler.com/blog/
https://daveroessler.com/blog/page/1/
https://daveroessler.com/blog/page/2/

and so on up to page/72/

Is there something I'm missing in Website Auditor or do I need to change code in website template?

Duplicate Content not showing up in Google Search Console for blog pagination - never has for past several years.

Would like to ensure pagination is accurate/correct for this and any other clients when I'm using Website Auditor. And want to avoid ignoring an issue thinking it is merely a software glitch.

Thanks!
Best, Andy

If you are using pagination on your blog you need to use the rel="next" and rel="prev" tags to avoid duplicate content issues as recommended by Google:

I am using rel="next" & rel="prev" and they are seen in 'view source' on any of those pages.

What else could it be?

IT appears your el="next" & rel="prev" are generated via JavaScipt. But WebSite Auditor does not read JavaScript generated content by default. You need to rebuild your project but to enable JavaScript execution under the Advanced Options tab:

This should solve the problem.

I already solved by adding "%%excerpt%%" in Yoast SEO Post Meta Description Template. This way all meta descriptions are differentiated.

But thanks for answer! :)
