    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.

    Hi Friends,
    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. It is described in RFC 6596, which went live in April 2012.

    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.

    It is a URL which informs what to show to the google and what not and other search engines to crawl a website, and what URL to index that specific page content can lead to search engines. It is important for these terms/facts - It represents the master copy of the page.

    The canonical tag is used to tell the search engines what URL you want them to index if there are multiple URLs with the same content. If each URL containing duplicate content has a canonical tag pointing to the URL you want to be indexed and ranked.

    A Canonical URL is a direct connection to a product's detail page which has key words pulled by Amazon, apparently arbitrarily, in the product's name and separated by hyphens. In the SEO world, this is usually known as the URL slug.

    A Canonical URL allows you to tell search engines that certain similar URLs are actually one and the same.

    A canonical URL tells search engines which piece of content is the preferred version and prevents your site from being penalized for duplicate content.

    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.

    If there are multiple versions of the same content to different URLs, the canonical tag search engine that informs one is the primary URL.
