    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.

    Canonical URLs relate to the concept of selecting the best URL for the web pages that the visitors want to see. Also, known as canonical tags, these URLs help in content syndication when multiple versions of a same page become available over the Internet. Thus, it is used to resolve issues related to content duplication.

    Canonical URL Tag attribute is designed for robots rather than the user (it is a rel attribute). ... The canonical tag should be added to the HTML header (<head>) of a page and tells robots that this page is a duplicate of another one along with which page contains the original information.

    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.
