Step 2.3: Canonicalization
Basic Concepts | On-Page | Canonicalization
Canonicalisation issues are essentially duplicate content issues, where a piece of content or a page is accessible from more than one URL.
There are many types of canonical issue, but these will typically fall into one of the following categories:
- Canonical duplication
- Duplicate content
- Multilingual or multi-regional sites
We discuss all of these in the next few pages in more depth.
There are only 4 ways with which to deal with these issues, some of which are used together and all of which we cover shortly.
- Canonical tags
- ‘Rel next’ and ‘prev tags’
- Hreflang tags (attributes)
