    A Canonical URL allows you to tell search engines that specific similar URLs are the same. Sometimes you have results or content that is available under multiple URLs, or even on various websites. Using a canonical URL (an HTML link tag with attribute rel=canonical), these can exist without harming your Rankings.

    <link rel=”canonical” href=”https://www.example.com” />

    The rel=canonical tag in action. Here it indicates that the page on which this tag appears should be treated as a duplicate of the specified URL.

    HTH!:)

    A canonical URL, sometimes referred to as a "canonical tag," is an HTML attribute that tells search engines where to assign the search value, or "link juice," for pages with duplicate or very similar content. Online stores often use canonical tags for product pages, which is crucial for retaining full search value.

    A canonical link element is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues in search engine optimization by specifying the "canonical" or "preferred" version of a web page.
