For a website owner, you may have faced the problems of “duplicate content.” It is almost impossible to avoid having pages in a site with different urls but they are all linked to the same page. This will be considered as the duplicate contents in which search engine like Google concludes a website having these duplicate contents as an unqualified website. So believe me you don’t want that happen! Then let’s eliminate this problem with Canonical Url.
How Canonical Url will help you!
After you installed this component, it will find what are the duplicate contents and automatically add the canonical tags for every duplicate one. The canonical will set the main url according to the first created content. Normally you have to add “Add a rel="canonical" link to the
section of the non-canonical version of each HTML page.” but no worries in this Canonical url. No need to find and add tags by yourself, just install, publish and suddenly all duplicate contents are gone!
Besides, it not only supports Joomla’s content but also other extensions installed in your Joomla site. Simply turn the extensions into canonical elements, then you will be able to use canonical features in those extensions and finally kill all the duplicate contents!
