Canonical tags

Post by steve » Tue Dec 20, 2016 4:43 am

Hi,
I have a general doubt on how the canonical tags work in tuffclassified/shopclass theme.. i found that the canonical tag is not displayed on the header, even if a duplicate ad is posted.

Is this a bug?
Thanks.

Could you explain this in detail please? Because this is what moz says - https://moz.com/learn/seo/canonicalization

I can confirm that canonical tags are NOT displayed even on search paginated pages on our theme.
The information on canonical tags on the internet, is, they are used to tell googlebot about different version of the same content page..so that only one can be indexed. There can be a bit more science to it probably.

My point is, that this tag is just absent on our theme. I think we (including tuffclassified.com) are missing some big SEO points.

PS - check locanto and other some other popular websites.. they have canonical tags on every page (except the item page).
