What is a canonical link tag (canonical URL)?
The canonical link tag can be set in the header of the HTML document.
If website content can be accessed at multiple URLs, the canonical link tag determines its source. This helps search engines index the right page and prevent indexing of duplicate content.
Please note that the canonical link tag is a recommendation only for search engines - it is not guaranteed that it will be used.
When do I need to establish a canonical link?
Typical cases of using canonical links:
- the site can be accessed via http and https (protocol)
- A website has more than one domain (my-website.com and mywebsite.com)
- there is a printed version of the site
- URLs include query strings (? Value = 1)
- In Joomla, an article is indicated by two menu items (for example, one article instead of using an alias)
- the site uses pagination
