What Is Canonical Tag?
 
Hello everyone,

Can anyone tell me what is the use of canonical tag? and how it is implemented in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?

Canonical URL is an important term that every blogger should be aware of. Even if you have heard or not, you should know what role Canonical URL plays in the optimization of a website. I have referred to it multiple times in my previous articles. While doing SEO, we need to check both On Page SEO and Off Page SEO. But if you are not doing your On Page SEO properly, you will not get the good results, no matter if you are performing Off Page SEO well. So today, I thought to write an article on URL Canonicalization (Canonical URL) which is a part of On Page SEO.

Thank for sharing this information, really useful.

In simple words, canonical tag is an HTML element that assists webmasters to prevent duplicate issues.

If you have similar versions or pages of the same content, you normally pick one “page” and then point the search engines to it.

For example, if you have 2 URLs which have same content. Choose one of the two pages as the canonical version. Then add rel=canonical link from non canonical page to the canonical page.

Syntax : <link rel="canonical" href="http://example.com/">

For more information, kindy go throught the following blog - https://unamo.com/blog/general/begin...-canonical-tag

After your long message of introduction you failed to discuss what really Canonical URL is and how it will be addressed within the website.

Canonical url helps a lot in improving a blog's presence in search engine results page also called serps in SEO terminology because it do so by preventing duplicate content problems...

A canonical tag specifies the source URL (or original content page) 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 reference their source / originating page.

Canonical tag is used in case of duplicate content. Means if you have 2 URL with same content and you want to stay with one at least then you should use canonical tag as

<link rel="canonical" href="http://abc.com/">

Canonical link
 
A canonical link element is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues by specifying the "canonical" or "preferred" version of a web page as part of search engine optimization.:thumbsup2

Canonical URL used to tell search engines that certain similar URLs are actually one and the same. This is the case where you have products or content that is accessible under multiple URLs, or even on multiple websites. Using a canonical URL, these can exist without harming your rankings.
