Questions tagged [canonical-url]

For webpages which may duplicate some or all of their content with other pages (for legitimate reasons), the canonical URL is the URL of the page which search engines should link to. This tag is used for canonical 301 redirects and other methods. See the [rel-canonical] tag for more information on rel="canonical".
