Canonical tag is a tag that use to tell search engine spider which is the preferred version of a set of pages with highly similar content.

You can put this code before the end of the head tag: <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.domain.com/" />

Thumbs up

canonical tag is used to alert the spider for similar content.

Duplicate content can often be a problem for SEOs that deal with large websites that have many different URLs. Implementing canonical tags on pages with duplicate content can impact your sites organic performance positively and eliminate any potential confusion from search engines indexing your website wrong.

canonical tag is used to make google sure that all the duplicate pages are one, this tag is mainly used for homepage, Like Home page URL is like this www.website.com/index.html, www.website.com, website.com, website.com/index.html

Read the help or support document on Google.com and on moz to get a clear idea about what exactly a rel="Canonical" is.

Canonical Issue=This type of problems are mainly related to url's . if you have enter different-different type of url's in search engine and open same page than this type of problems are called canonical issue and effect for your traffic and ranking.

Exap : <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.xyxabc.com/product.php?item=xya-abcdcif"/>

This tags use for avoiding duplicate content issues.. You are not creating them but it creates its self by CMS or programming. For example: If you have two page for the same content like

www. yourwebsite. com/product_1.php
www. yourwebsite. com/product_1B.php (Both have same content)

In this case you should use rel="canonical" for the first page

Canonical tag is a technique used to avoid duplicate content. For example some time we show the same content on different pages for user benefit but it creates the problem of duplicate pages. In this scenario canonical tag plays a critical role. Place this tag <link rel="canonical" href="original url"/> on duplicate page to avoid canonical or duplicate page issue.

canonical tag is used to make the website run on one URL means it should not get opened on both these urls (abc dot com) and (www dot abc dot com) and this tag is inserted in htaccess file.
