    Re: Canonical URL

    Canonical URLs relate to the concept of selecting the best URL for the web pages that the
    visitors want to see. Also, known as canonical tags, these URLs help in content syndication when
    multiple versions of the same page become available over the Internet. Thus, it is used to resolve
    issues related to content duplication.

    Re: Canonical URL

    A canonical issue arises when 301 redirects are not properly in place. This means that your website can be accessed by search engines from several different URLs. This means that search engines can then potentially index your site under different URLs, its show difference site on google

    Re: Canonical URL

    Canonical Urls are on the page and define which url the page should be indexed as. This is used when you have one or more url parameters that might resolve that same content.

    Re: Canonical URL

    It's a good idea to pick one of those URLs as your preferred (canonical) destination, and use 301 redirects to send traffic from the other URLs to your preferred URL. A server-side 301 redirect is the best way to ensure that users and search engines are directed to the correct page.

    Re: Canonical URL

    Canonicalization is the process of picking the best URL when there are multiple choices available. Google will attempt to pick the best URL that they feel is the authority for that page.The easiest way to avoid this is to let the Search engines and the users know which is your "preferred URL" a.k.a canonical URL.

    Re: Canonical URL

    Hi

    A valid URL tells you the search engine that some similar URLs are actually another one. Sometimes you have the product or content available on many URLs or on many websites. Using a canonical URL (an HTML link tag with attribute rel = canonical) may be present without damaging your ranking

    Hope this helps you.

    Re: Canonical URL

    If you have a single page accessible by multiple URLs, or different pages with similar content (for example, a page with both a mobile and a desktop version), you should explicitly tell Google which URL is authoritative (canonical) for that page. If you do not do this explicitly, Google will make the choice for you, or might consider them both of equal weight, which might lead to unwanted behavior, as explained in the next section.

    Note that although we recommend that you specify a canonical page for duplicate URLs or versions, Google might algorithmically choose a different page as canonical for various reasons such as performance or content.
