How To Fix Canonicalization Issues

Search engine optimization (SEO), and URL canonicalization deals with web content that has more than one possible URL. Having multiple URLs for the same web content can cause problems for search engines – specifically in determining which URL should be shown in search results.

For example:

All of these URLs point to the homepage of Wikipedia, but a search engine will only consider one of them as the canonical form of the URL. For SEOs, canonicalization refers to individual web pages that can be loaded from multiple URLs. This is a problem because when multiple pages have the same content but different URLs, links that are intended to go to the same page get split up among multiple URLs. This means that the popularity of the pages gets split up. Unfortunately for web developers, this happens far too often because the default settings for web servers create this problem.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to
    be running off the screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or
    something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few
    months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
