I have two pages on the site that are 100% identical:
MyDomain.com/Keyword exists solely because I had to give the page I created in the CMS a url, and that page is then also displayed as the home page.
Recently Google started displaying MyDomain.com/Keyword in the serps for "Keyword" searches instead of the homepage. That (I believe) caused the site to drop several places in the serps since the March 2019 update.
both pages contain a canonical tag informing google that the home page is to be treated as the source, but for some reason Google has decided (after many years) to ignore this.
Has anyone experienced such behavior from Google? What did you do?
Should I do a 301 from MyDomain.com/Keyword to MyDomain.com?
