I'm using Adobe Muse to build websites and when the phone/tablet version of a site is created, canonical tags are automatically generated that point to the desktop version of the site. The canonical tags are non-editable and non-removable.
If I use .htaccess to remove the file extensions, will this have a negative impact on SEO? I'm assuming that at the very least, Google will begin to ignore the canonical tag.
I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but I wanted to get another opinion.
If the mobile version of a page has a canonical tag like this:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://example.com/awesome-page.html">
But I use .htaccess to remove the file extension so that the actual URL now looks like this:
Is this bad?
