When two web pages have identical information, in order to differentiate between them cannonical tag is assigned to them. In this way you can initimate Google about which web page is to be considered.

Hello everybody,

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

Thanks and regards

Hello Mate ;)
A canonical link element is an HTML element that helps webmasters avoid duplicate content problems, specifying the "canonical" or "preferred" version of a web page as part of search engine optimization.
How do you add the tag?
The rel=canonical can be added in the source of your webpage:
Quote
<link rel="canonical" href="url" />
I hope its helpful for you!!

Canonical tag is used to tell search engines that which version you want to be indexed for your website. in some situations, search engine indexes both www and without www, so adding the canonical tag can remove duplicacy of pages.
