Hi Friends,

Cannibalization is something to take seriously as it can potentially damage your rankings for multiple reasons.Keyword cannibalization happens when a website’s information architecture rely on a single keyword or phrase on multiple place of the website. While this can occur unintentionally, having a bunch of pages with the same keyword in the title, anchor, header tags for instance can really cause you troubles regarding Google’ guidelines. Most of the time the purpose of keyword stuffing strategies is to rank for a specific term.
