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.

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
