    Canonical is a value written in ‘rel’ field of the link tag. If search engines come across a webpage with canonical tag in it, they understand that it is the duplicate version.A URL is provided in the link tag which points to original version of the content.

    A canonical issue arises when 301 redirects are not properly in place. This means that your website can be accessed by search engines from several different URLs. This means that search engines can then potentially index your site under different URLs, meaning that it will look like a site of duplicated content.

    The 6 most common errors on the canonical URL:

    1. the same URL is indicated as canonical for a very large number of pages on the site.
    2. several canonical URLs are indicated in the chain.
    3. A indicates B as canonical, but B redirects to A.
    4. no canonical URL is specified for a page that is called with different URL parameters.
    5. no canonical URL is indicated on a mobile site not responsive design.
    6. A indicates B as the canonical URL, but B is in error 404 or forbids the crawl or indexing.
