What is a canonical tag?

Recommended Posts

content.

A classic example is your homepage:
www.yousite. com
www.yousite. com/index
www.yousite. com/index.html
yousite. com

These all leads to a single content based webpage, which makes one original and others duplicate.

canonical tag suggests crawler that the url in the content tag is the original URL and this is with similar content. So please consider the URL mentioned in canonical tag as original.

A canonical tag (aka "rel canonical") is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of a page. Using the canonical tagprevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs.

Canonical tags are used to declare a single page as its own source or for duplicate pages to refer their originating page.

It's the tag which really help search engine, at least partially too see which content was done by you or not at least partially. See my point ? So basically if you have writtent something and you do know it's unique make it canonical anyway.

A canonical tag specifies the source URL of a given page to a search engine such as Google. Canonical tags are used to declare a single page as its own source or for duplicate pages to refer their originating page.
