    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 help search engines consolidate the information they have for the individual URLs (such as links to them) into a single, authoritative URL. ... "If you syndicate your content for publication on other domains, canonical URLs help to consolidate page ranking to your preferred URL."

    There are two main ways to fix canonical issues on a website: by implementing 301 redirects, and/or by adding canonical tags to your site's pages to tell Google which of several similar pages is preferred. The right option depends on the canonical issue you're trying to resolve.

    A canonical URL is the preferred version of a web page. It appears in a small piece of code found on a page that tells search engines how to crawl the page and rank the importance of the content. In the event that you have the same content found on different URLs, using this code— referred to as rel=canonical tag—will help search crawlers better understand what content is important, resolve duplicate content issues, improve the ranking of that content, and ultimately, can lead more customers to your site.
