In the WordPress SEO plugin by Yoast, there is an option that could noindex the subpages of archives. From example, it would noindex the following:
http://example.com/page/2/ http://example.com/page/3/ http://example.com/page/4/
… and so on. Is there a good and legitimate reason to do this, in terms of SEO? Would it benefit me in any way?
