A canonical tag (aka "rel canonical") is a way of telling search engines that a specific URL represents the master copy of a page. Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs.

A canonical tag indicates the source URL of an offered page to a search engine , for example, Google. Canonical tags are utilized to announce a solitary page as its own particular source or for copy pages to reference their source/starting page. Web indexes utilize the standard tag to battle copy content issues and allot web index positioning an incentive for that substance to the page assigned as the "source" URL.

A canonical tag specifies the source URL (or original content page) of a given page to a search engine such as Google. Canonical tags are used to declare a single page as its own source or for duplicate pages to reference their source / originating page. Search Engines use the canonical tag to combat duplicate content issues and assign search engine ranking value for that content to the page designated as the “source” URL.

A canonical link element is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues in search engine optimization by specifying the "canonical" or "preferred" version of a web page. It is described in RFC 6596, which went live in April
