What is a Canonical URL?

Hi Friends,

Canonical URLs helps prevent duplication on the web. For example, if you have two web pages with similar content and you want Google to index the page with the best content. You then apply a “rel=canonical” tag to that page meaning Google now will give priority to the Canonical tag page and ignore the rest. This will eventually help eliminate the duplication on the web.

Hi Friends,

A canonical URL, sometimes referred to as a "canonical tag," is an HTML attribute that tells search engines where to assign the search value, or "link juice," for pages with duplicate or very similar content. Online stores often use canonical tags for product pages, which is crucial for retaining full search value.

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 tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs. Practically speaking, the canonical tag tells search engines which version of a URL you want to appear in search results.
