Another option for dealing with duplicate content is to utilize the rel=canonical tag.
The rel=canonical tag passes the same amount of link juice (ranking power) as a 301 redirect and often takes much less development time to implement.

The canonical tag is used to mention duplicate content on our website. You can do it by specifying the “canonical URL” and enter “preferred” version of a web page. If you have duplicate content on your website then using canonical tag will help in SEO of your website.

The rel=canonical element, often called the “canonical link”, is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues. It does this by specifying the “canonical URL”, the “preferred” version of a web page. Using it well improves a site's SEO.

In the field of SEO, the canonical tag helps Google know the article on your website is not copy, and it should be found in search results website.

Cannonical tag tells the search engine that a particular URL or webpage is the master copy or the original copy. Cannonical tag instructs the search engine that a particular is the authorative URL.

Cannonical URL is the URL which you want the user to be seen.

There can be multiple versions of the same page. Let's understand this with an example

www.example.com
example.com
www.example.com/index.html
example.com/home.asp

All of this might be different URL's and might create an issue for the search engines.

Cannonicalization is the process of picking the best URL to be presented to the search engines.

In order to set up Cannonicalization you should make use of rel=cannonical

Using the canonical tag prevents problems caused by identical or "duplicate" content appearing on multiple URLs. Practically speaking, the canonical tag tells search engines which version of a URL you want to appear in search results.
