A 301 Redirect signals to the search engine that the page has been moved permanently, remove the page from the index and pass any acquired SEO credit to the new page.

A Canonical Attribute signals to the search engine that the document has multiple versions of the page (or its content). The URL pointed listed in the canonical attribute should be consider the original, the real page: only it should be indexed. The duplicated pages will be kept on the website but should not be indexed by the search engine.

Canonical :- If their are multiple version of one page than Canonical Tag is used to tell search engine which is the preferred version of web page.

301 Redirection :- 301 redirect means you have changed the URL permanently.

  • A 301 is permanent redirect url and it is designed to help users and search engines find pieces of content that have moved to a new URL. Adding a 301 redirect means that the content of the page has permanently moved somewhere else.

  • Canonical tag to tell Google what is the preferred version of the page that is needed to be indexed.
