Hi There,

Google recognizes different pages on Category and Tag pages as duplicate. here is an example:

Duplicate question pages on Google Search Console


Duplicate tag pages on Google Search Console


Is there a way so that google would not index these pages as duplicate?

By adding Robot.txt
How to add it to robot.txt?

There are too many duplicates ( around 300 suplicates)

Should I disallow all of the duplicates in robots.txt? This doesn't make sense. How about adding rel canonical or something like this?

Actually I was also facing same problem. You should use "Sitemap Plugin" to resolve this problem. You can create custom category-sitemap.xml file for categories and tag-sitemap.xml for tags.

And upload to file manager in your cPanel in public_html folder.
