[SEO] Canonical tags - eosdttve - 2014-03-03

I've installed Google SEO plugin and I've enabled Canonical Page function to "Avoid Duplicate Content" but I was checking my Google webmaster account and I see a few things that worries me and I just can't understand how to fix them.

It shows that I have:

Duplicate meta descriptions: 136

Duplicate title tags: 2,507


In the Duplicate title tags section, clicking on titles gives me things like:

mysite.com/thread-xx.html?action=lastpost
/thread-14.html

or

mysite.com/thread-xx.html?action=newpost
/thread-14.html

or

mysite.com/showthread.php?tid=16&pid=284
mysite.com/showthread.php?tid=16
mysite.com/thread-16.html


I just don't understand how they are created and counted as duplicate titles.

Should I be concerned and if so, how do I fix the problem?

Many thanks in advance!

There is a plugin on MyBB Central which adds canonical tags to the show forum and show thread pages.

You just need to change the compatibility entry.
