    Canonical tag is HTML code, which assists to webmaster for preventing the copy content issue via adding “canonical” version of web page as SEO part. Generally, search engine spiders utilize this code to pass message to search engine, and proves that URL is original version of web page.

    Including a rel=canonical link in your webpage is a strong hint to search engines your about preferred version to index among duplicate pages on the web. It’s supported by several search engines, including Yahoo!, Bing, and Google. The rel=canonical link consolidates indexing properties from the duplicates, like their inbound links, as well as specifies which URL you’d like displayed in search results. However, rel=canonical can be a bit tricky because it’s not very obvious when there’s a misconfiguration.
