Canonical URL Plugin for WordPress

Canonical URL Plugin for WordpressI think  bloggers will be very interested to read about the new canonical tag and the plugin developed by Joost de Valk now available to download and installable ahead of time!

As per usual Joost has been on the ball and ahead of the game in explaining the reasons for and the solution to canonical issues and again provides us with this cool little plugin so instead of waffling on about it I will pass you over to him so you can read and download his new Canonical Plugin for Woordpress.

Also by doing this it means I can get back to installing it…stop reading this and go get it. (And while your there make sure and leave him a nice comment, he gets all giddy over things like that.)

    This IS way over my head, but I got that the plug-in is important. SO I installed it and everything is fine. Thanks @yoast

      Hi Jack, I know what you mean, I have trouble understanding and explaining canonical URLs exactly as well.

      Basically canonical URLS make any alternatives (duplicates) of the same page work under the same address. A simple example is that some pages will have a trailing”/” at the end and some wont. Using Canonical URLs basically makes search engines aware that although both exist they are the same page and not duplicate (intentionally). I know that’s a double negative but it’s about as simple as I can make it.

      Its complicated to explain, but having that plugin installed should go a long way to resolving any duplicate content issues and stop you falling into any unnecessary problems with search engines.

        Thanks Justin.
        I used to get upset about not understanding how everything works. Now I know that I can’t possibly understand it all. All that I want to know is that I have what I need. Your post on fb let me know that there is something I need, so I got it.

        I appreciate your effort.
        Have a wonderful day.
