For pages that have
rel="canonical" and are duplicates of other pages on my site, does it make sense to optimize those pages? Would optimize the duplicate page with
rel="canonical" in terms of the title tag and including keywords help the page that the rel canonical is pointing to when it comes to SEO.
For example, if I had a page called dogs1 and another page called dogs2 with
rel="canonical" pointing to dogs1. Would optimizing dogs2 help dogs1 with SEO?
Clarification: I know link juice is passed using
rel="canonical" so in terms of external SEO, the answer would probably be yes, but in terms of internal SEO like keywords and optimizing titles, would it still be benefical?
