What is a canonical URL?
A canonical URL is an invisible link in the HTML of a web page that tells the browser whether the page contains original content. Original pages should have their own URL as the canonical URL (self-referencing), whereas duplicate or copied pages should contain the URL of the original page. Many sites use canonical URLs so that they can have the same product in multiple categories or so that they can repost an article that first appeared on another site.
