    The Canonical URL (canonical URL) is a tag used to indicate to a search engine, when several contents have different URLs , but identical contents, what is the " main " URL to take into account for indexing , thus avoiding leaving the engine to choose for you.

    Canonical url or tag prevents the duplicate content issues on having similar url. It tells search engine about the preferred url.
