I have 745 Empty Meta Descriptions from posts, tags, and categories.

Google shows a meta description by taking verbiage from web copy. There is no issue listed in Google Search Console.

Google, Notable Seo's, and Yoast say it is preferable to leave Meta Description blank and allow Google to grab initial 165 characters if you are not creating unique meta descriptions for each post. (Not including primary content pages/posts/blog pages etc. which you should).

Should I ignore Website Auditor "empty meta description" warning?

This is for a client who creates their own posts and refuses to write metas or pay to have it done, etc. So I want to at least set up a best case scenario.

Since I am using Yoast SEO plugin, was considering using %%excerpt%% in the Meta description template for Posts.

Your thoughts?

I added %%excerpt%% to Post meta description template and they removed although not convinced this is best policy.

However, I now have empty meta descriptions for AMP pages. Help please
