The rel=canonical in SEO

SEO

The rel=canonical in Seo, or “canonical link”, is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. The canonical meta tag is placed in the <head> block of a product or category page. It provides a link to your preferred URL, so search engines will give it greater weight.

To enable the canonical meta data:

  • Admin menu > System > Configuration. Then in the panel on the left under Catalog, select Catalog.
  • Click to expand the SEO section. 

 

  • To index only pages that have a full category path, follow this:
  1. Use Canonical Link Meta Tag for Categories > Yes
  2. Use Canonical Link Meta Tag for Products > No

 

  • To index only product pages, follow this:
  1. Use Canonical Link Meta Tag for Categories > No
  2. Use Canonical Link Meta Tag for Products > Yes

 

  • When you are done click Save button.

Indicate the preferred URL with the rel="canonical" link element

Suppose you want http://www.corina-ciobotaru.com/   to be the preferred URL, even though a variety of URLs can access this content. You can indicate this to search engines as follows:

  • Mark up the canonical page and any other variants with a rel=”canonical” link element.
    Add a <link> element with the attribute rel="canonical" to the <head> section of these pages:

    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.corina-ciobotaru.com/" />

    This indicates the preferred URL to use to access the SEO post so that the search results will be more likely to show users that URL structure. (Note: We attempt to respect this, but cannot guarantee this in all cases.)
