How to use tags more effectively from SEO point of view?

I am confused about the use of tags. Whenever I create tags and run my website through siteliner it says about 36% of the content is duplicate. When I analyze the duplicate content then they’re the same posts but with another tag URL. What can be done in this case? For now, I have deleted all my tags, but I guess I am losing a good portion of the traffic in future.

Noindex the tags! They don’t help usually.

How to do that?

You can noindex them using Yoast or any other SEO plugin of your choice!

Are you Yoast SEO Plugin? Then reproduce the below steps:

Yoast > Search Appearance > Taxonomies > Tags (post_tag) > Choose “No”, and Hide “Yoast SEO Meta Box”.
