A canonical tag is an element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues on their websites.

The canonical tag helps in determining if there is any duplicate content on the website and tells search engines which version of a page is the original.

The canonical tag is placed in the head HTML section of the web page.

It is important to place it on all the pages of a website because the search engine can punish websites for having duplicate content.

Canonical tags are a great way to improve your website’s SEO.

I hope this was helpful.
