Issues With Tags & Yoast SEO Canonicals With Some WordPress Themes


In episode 104 of Semantic Mastery’s weekly Hump Day Hangouts ( one viewer asked mentioned potential issues with some WordPress themes when working with tags and canonicals using Yoast SEO.

The exact question was:

2 years- congrats guys! Recently I attended a one and a half hour long webinar by a highly known social media expert. Truth is, Bradley, Marco and Hernan often share more helpful, actionable information in a 5 minute Humpday answer than was learned from that entire webinar. You guys are great. Thanks.

My question. I use a unique tag for each post and then use Yoast SEO canonical for each tag page back to the post. This worked with prior theme but is not working with a new theme from same company on a new site. I am not sure if it is a problem with the theme or Yoast. Should I stop using unique tags or could I instead redirect the tag page back to the post using Redirection plugin instead of using canonical? Or is there another easy fix idea?
