    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. Online stores often use canonical tags for product pages, which is crucial for retaining full search value.

    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 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.
