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
  • Pagination
  • 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)
  • Redirects
