    Question Is making tags noindex will affect ranking?

    I have recently made a change in Yoast SEO to no-index the tag to prevent internal duplication.
    Will it affect ranking?

    You mean you have excluded "tag" pages on a Wordpress blog from the set of
    pages that is potentially indexed?

    Yes it will affect your ranking. In what way, nobody can tell in advance.
    It sorta depends on how much traffic those pages were getting you, and on how
    they were ranking when compared to the rest...
