What exactly is a canonical link tag you might ask?

Canonical Link Tag Information: With so many duplicate web-content links it was only a matter of time before some enterprising individual found a way to truly separate and specify the primary and original content links. This way search engines can focus on the original location as opposed to the myriad of other variations in existence. The answer to the question of reused and copied web page links is what is known as the canonical link tag, also known as the canonical URL tag.

What exactly is a canonical link tag you might ask? Well a canonical link tag (we discussed it hear, too) is a code segment placed in the header of a website that has closely related web pages with similar content. This canonical link tag allows for the segregation of the similar pages so that search engines, especially Google at present since they came up with the concept, can know exactly what page the website owner wants them to consider for inclusion in their search engine searches instead of the haphazard manner it is done now.
