Last 30 days I experianced real ranking and CTR boost on Google Search, only with setting up pages as canonical.
New Google Search Console when indexing pages, also fetches information if page is (user defined) canonical or not. If not, google set up a canonical page automatically (which sometimes may cause google assign false page as canonical).
Now i have this challenge, my root page ranks very high and all other versions (/, index.php, index.html) are redirected to the root BUT when i let root page be indexed by search console, they dont show information about canical page because it is not set up.
Now, arranging pages as canonical surely helps Google to rank pages, but i am confused about canonicalised homepage. should i do it or not. (or am i just overthining all this so that I lost clear meaning about canonical pages)
Thanks for any information!
