Should You 301 Redirect Multiple Tag Pages That Cause Duplicate Content?

By April

 

In episode 238 of Semantic Mastery's weekly Hump Day Hangouts, one participant asked if one should 301 redirect multiple tag pages that cause duplicate content.

The exact question was:

I'm doing an website analysis for a client (Yes! They are paying me for this service!). The website has a large number of Tag pages that are indexed, but also contain a high percentage of duplicate content. Should these tag pages be 301 redirected to relevant pages, left alone, or do something else? Thanks, Scott
