I have a website about 'Virtualization' and I want to rank for 'Virtualization, Desktop Virtualization, Server Virtualization and Network virtualization' keywords. I wrote a long article about these topics in my services pages and optimized those pages for these keywords.

  1. Should I use my home page as canonical URL for all these pages?
  2. Is this action help to rank my home page for those 4 keywords or not?
  3. Is it possible to rank one page for all of these keywords?

Use Canonical URLs if there are two pages with different URLs but the same content.

If there is a page for virtualization and a separate page for desktop virtualization and the content on both the pages is different, then there is no need to use canonical URLs.

If 2 pages have exactly the same content then set the one, you want to be indexed, as canonical.

  • You can optimize your pages to rank for their respective keywords and your home page for multiple keywords.
