Re: What is canonical link

A canonical tag (aka "rel canonical") is a technique of telling search engines that a precise URL represents the master replica of a web page. Utilizing the canonical tag prevents problems caused through same or "replica" content material appearing on a couple of URLs. Just practically speaking, the canonical tag tells search engines which version of a URL you want to have to appear in search results.

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

Sometimes you have different versions of a similar page. This often happens in case of e commerce websites when a product description is included in different pages of the website. So, in order to avoid the confusion and make it convenient for google to index the right page, canonical link is attached to the URL of the correct page or the page you wish google to crawl. This is very helpful to avoid duplication of pages and direct google in the right direction. If you do not make this specification and google crawls both the pages it might effect your ranking. All you have to do is set the canonical URL in YOAST SEO plugin and use it wherever necessary to avoid confusion. These SEO tactics require expert vigilance.

A canonical tag (aka "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.
