Easy add rel canonical to the default or main page!

http://www.site.com can be accessed by http://www.site.com/index.html or http://www.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (server IP)

Add rel="caninical" to http://www.site.com

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” It is the process of getting traffic from the “free,” “organic,” “editorial” or “paid” search results on search engines

In search engine optimization, on-page optimization refers to factors that have an effect on your Web site or Web page listing in natural search results. These factors are controlled by you or by coding on your page.


Off page SEO refers to techniques that can be used to improve the position of a web site in the search engine results page (SERPs). Many people associate off-page SEO with link building but it is not only that. In general, off Page SEO has to do with promotion methods – beyond website design –for the purpose of ranking a website higher in the search results.

The best and most effective way to resolve the canonical issue is with a permanent 301 redirect. This can be implemented in a number of ways, as detailed below. Depending on what server your website is hosted on will determine the method which you use to implement a redirect.
In addition to this it is worth also logging into Google Webmaster Tools and set-up two profiles for your domain; one with the www. prefix and one without. Then go to Site “Configuration> Settings> Preferred Domain” and choose which domain you would like Google to use.

How to fix canonicalisation problems

There are now 2 different ways of fixing canonicalization issues to your site. Quite recently Google announced supporting a new “canonical tag” that lets you specify in the HTML header that the URL in question should be treated as a “copy” and names the canonical URL that all link authority and content metrics should flow back to.

Within the HTML header of the page loading on this URL http://www.vervesearch.com/index.php there would be a parameter like this:

<link rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.vervesearch.com/” />

This would “tell” the search engines that they should index the canonical URL specified in this tag and also weigh any link authority from the /index.php URL to the canonical URL. The rel=canonical tag should be implemented on every URL you have that is loading the same page (except from the main canonical URL you want to use of course).
This tag is really easy to implement and can solve a lot of canonicalization issues, BUT it has its limitations. For example you can’t use this for your country specific TLDs (which essentially a separate domain) or other additional domains you might have bought. There might also be issues with the fact that this tag only “redirects” the engines attention to the correct URL, users will still be able to use all the different URLs and within your analytics these are likely to come up as different pages.

My preferred method and a pretty air tight solution for canonicalization problems is using 301 redirects. A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to another, using a 301 redirect will carry over any link authority from one URL to another, even from a different domain! As opposed to a 302 redirect which is a “temporary” redirect that won’t carry over the link authority and is general just rubbish. Just don’t use 302 redirects ok!! With a 301 redirect you will also avoid any user complications as even if the user types in a URL in the browser it will redirect to the canonical URL! Want to check if a URL is 301 redirecting correctly, try this redirect checker!

The problem with 301 redirects is that it is generally much harder to implement than the rel=canonical tag. To create a 301 redirect you will need to create (if you don’t already have one) an .htaccess file that you upload to the root of your server. More about how to implment 301 redirects in .htaccess files here. If you are not a programmer or very technical, I advise you to get your programmer to do this for you, as messing with the .htaccess file can really mess with your site. Some hosting companies will have 301 redirect capabilities within your cPanel, which I have, in this case you can easily 301 redirect URLs and domains from there. If on the other hand your site is developed in .ASP or worse ASP.NET (only joking)please check out this site for instructions on how to do a 301 redirect when using IIS servers.

Making sure your websites URLs are organised and redirected appropriately, choosing one canonical URL that all other URLs will be redirected to (either by 301 or rel=canonical tag) could potentially have a BIG impact on your SEO efforts. Don’t confuse the search engine spiders or your users, sort it out!
