Duplicate meta description tags problem

Hello
I use this site http://www.attracta.com
(In addition to Google Webmaster Tools.)
To analyze my site for obtaining good results in Google.
The results of the analysis i receive the following diagnosis:

Duplicate meta description tags
At -988 pages!


Duplicate title tags
At -950 pages!


A. Does that make sense?
B. If so, how do I remove the duplicate? I canceled my description of the general meta in the general settings and still I get the above result.
So what still appears to me that I have duplicates meta & titles at -988 page?
What's the problem and what the solution?

Thanks in advance

Maybe you have duplicated links to same page.

Attracta seo tool tells which these pages are.
One common reason for this is pagination.
For example you have these links:
[yoursite]/index.php?option=your_com&page=2
[yoursite]/index.php?option=your_com&page=3

These urls probably have the same title and description.

There is no other way for fixing this that using a plugin that add page number to title and description.
I guess there should be a few in JED.

Also, I don't how truly important that is. Maybe it is not worth to fix it.

If anyone else hits this issue the first thing to look at, is if you have a calendar or event component installed.

I've worked with some components that have links it the calendar boxes where the field is empty, meaning hundreds and even thousands of duplicate titles and descriptions that are blank or default content. Google will find all of these duplicate links if you are not careful.

You should write it manually for each page. As per search engine terms each page should be have there unique meta data.

Such a big number of duplicates is not normal, try to remove your SITE META DESCRIPTION from your Joomla Global configuration page, it tends to be duplicated in most pages that do not have a meta description.
