Want to level up your website SEO? Read on to learn more about canonical URLs, an advanced SEO feature.

Canonical URLs play an important role in ensuring that Google (and other search engines) don't penalize your website for having similar or near-identical content. They help ensure that search engines don’t get confused when different URLs point to the same content or page on your website. They're also helpful in ensuring that pages within your website that have similar keywords don't compete against each other for ranking.

Canonical URLs tell search engines where the primary content for a page resides. For example, say your primary page for tops lives at, but you have variations on tops, like summer tops ( and winter tops ( Placing a canonical URL of on each thematic page would tell search engines to index the canonical page and not the thematic URL (e.g., summer-topswinter-tops, etc.)
