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
