Canonical tags help the search engines know which way you prefer the page to be indexed in those search engines and also let them know that this page is really just one page–not three.

<link rel=”canonical” href=” />

The canonical tag for each page should be added somewhere between the head tags on your website page and the link in the tag should be to your preferred version of the page.

A canonical tag specifies the source URL (or original content page) of a given page to a search engine such as Google. Canonical tags are used to declare a single page as its own source or for duplicate pages to reference their source / originating page. Search Engines use the canonical tag to combat duplicate content issues and assign search engine ranking  value for that content to the page designated as the “source” URL.

A canonical URL allows you to express search engines that certain comparable URLs are essentially one and the same. Occasionally you take produces or content that is accessible below several URLs, or even on several websites. By a canonical URL (an HTML link tag by attribute rel=canonical) these can exist without harming your rankings.
