SEO Meta Tags - Canonical, Robots

SEO Meta Tags - canonical, robots

There are techniques used when the same content is duplicated across multiple web pages, or when you want to hide certain pages from search engines.

Let's look at the canonical and robots meta tags used in these cases.


The canonical link tells search engines which page is the "official" version when there is duplicate content across multiple pages.

Example:

Example of canonical link
<head>
<link rel="canonical" href="https://example.com/original-article" />
</head>

This tag informs search engines that the "original-article" page is the official version among the content duplicates.


robots meta Tag

The robots meta tag directs search engines not to index or crawl (a program that collects information from web pages) a specific page. It's similar to not wanting to share certain documents or information with others.

Example:

Example of robots meta tag
<head>
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />
</head>

Through this tag, you instruct search engines not to list the page in their indices and not to follow the links on the page.
