Canonical link is used to prevent the duplicate content issues by specifying the "canonical", or "preferred", version of a web page. The approach is very important in SEO.

Basically, a Canonical tag is a tag that tells Google which version of the duplicated content on your website is the original.

If your link doesn't automatically redirect URL with WWW. If you have canonical issues So, Google consider your site in duplicate.
Canonical problem remove by two method:
1. using meta canonical tag in head section of page.
2. Create .htaccess file on the root. it based on 301 and 302 error.

Hi Friends

Canonical links are also known as “preferred links”. When search engines have to deal with duplicate content, they have to choose which link should be favored over all others that contain identical page content.

Thanks and Regards

When we submit any url in a browser's address bar then if site does not open with that same url then this type of issue is called canonical issue. For example if we type http ://www dot abc dot com then if it opens with different url as http ://www dot abc dot com, abc dot com or any other url then it is called canonical. This issue can be reduced by using canonical tags on websites coding.

Suppose we have one site "abc.com".

The crawler will treat "URL with www" and "URL without www" as distinct URL and will crawl them as such and the duplicate content issue can arise. So through canonical Tag, we let the search engine know that which URL should be treated as original, and hence duplicate content issue will be eliminated.

From an SEO point of view here is the definition of a canonical URL: Canonical URL: the search engine friendly URL that you want the search engines to treat as authoritative. In other words, a canonical URL is a URL that you want visitors to see. Quite often canonical URLs were used to describe the homepage.

A canonical tag ( "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.
