On paginated pages like category or tag archives, date archives or author archives, Yoast SEO will add a canonical to the current paginated page. So, say you’re on example.com/category/uncategorized/page/2/, the canonical will point at exactly that URL. Yoast SEO will also addrel="next" and rel="prev" links, pointing to the previous and the next page in the paginated series. These three combined make sure that search engines understand that they’re on a paginated series and will crawl it accordingly.
