SEO - Canonical Tags
An HTML link element that allows webmasters to notify search engines some duplicate content pages that have been created. The tag is placed in the <HEAD> section of the HTML code. Below is an example:
<link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.yourwebsite.com/” />
The purpose of the tag is to inform the search engine robot that the existing page is a duplicate of the page located under the web address that's set in the canonical tag / href.
It's very similar to a 301.
