in a static website you have to use it by adding the code by hand while on a dynamic website like wordpress, there are several plugins which help you achieve the goal of setting pages to canonical

 Hello Guys,

If you have two or more pages with similar content, you can tell google, which is your preferred page to show in the search engine results. This is referred to as your 'canonical' page.

Thanks and Regards

Canonical tag is utilized for URL and you could look any web site is using www. to open in web, but the same website is opened without using www.

Canonical url basically means the preferred urls which lead to your article. Simply put it is an attribute of the link tag just like we have a few other attributes for example the no-follow attribute.

     Many times we are in a situation where we have to use same content for different pages in our site.It is not a real meta tag but an HTML description.By adding the canonical tag we are giving messages to spiders that which page you want to display.

When a page of your website is being opened with multiple urls so it would be considered a canonical issue and Google rates it like a Duplication.

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.
