    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 the URL that you want visitors to see. Quite often canonical URLs were used to describe the homepage.

    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.

    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. Practically speaking, the canonical tag tells search engines which version of a URL you want to appear in search results.

    it is the attributes in HTML tag, the benefits of canonical tag is protect your content from duplication and prevent users from multiple URL.it suggest to search engine crawler that content in URL is original.basicaly it used when two or more URL display the same content, that’s not good for your content so it needs to use canonical tag.
    search engine crawler can be a confuse after seen same URL or pages in the site that, it can't decide that which is the original and which is duplicate. so canonical tags remove his confusion about duplication of the page. if you don't use the canonical tag, the search engine might ban your page.

    A canonical URL is a your preferred URL. Still not making sense? We understand, so let us explain. URLs can have multiple variables and as such, to avoid issues like duplicate content, Google asks that the webmaster chooses one to use. Let us look at our homepage and see what variables are available:
    1. digital-muscle.com.au
    2. www.digital-muscle.com.au
    3. http://www.digital-muscle.com.au
    4. https://digital-muscle.com.au

    Using these stems you and depending on the type of server you use, variables can include /index.html, /index.asp, even having a forward slash at the end of a URL will count as a separate page.

    Thanks

    A canonical URL refers to an HTML link element, with the attribute of rel="canonical", found in the <head> element of your webpage. It specifies to search engines your preferred URL. What that means is that the canonical URL element informs Google and other search engines to crawl a website, and what URL to index that specific page content under.

    Canonical is a preferred url for most search engines as they lift up your links & ranking signals for the content available through multiple URL’s. Rel canonical url’s also resolve duplicate content issues. Rel=canonical usually used to sum up it within the top portion of your HTML.

    A canonical URL sometimes referred to as a canonical tag, is an HTML attribute that tells search engines where to assign the search value, or link juice, for pages with duplicate or very similar content.

    The rel=canonical element, often called the “canonical link”, is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. It does this by specifying the “canonical URL”, the “preferred” version of a web page – the original source, even. Using it well improves a site's SEO.
