We are happy to share that our latest WordPress plugin release includes support for Canonical Tags, enhancing SEO management for your localized web pages.

What Are Canonical Tags?

Canonical tags are HTML elements used to specify the preferred version of a webpage when there are multiple versions with similar or identical content. They help search engines understand which URL should be considered the authoritative version, consolidating SEO value and preventing duplicate content issues.

Benefits of Canonical Tags for SEO

Prevention of Duplicate Content Issues:

  • Localized websites often have similar content across different language versions (e.g., https://example.com/en for English and https://example.com/fr for French). Canonical tags specify the preferred version, preventing search engines from treating these as duplicate content.
  • Search engines can penalize sites for duplicate content. By using canonical tags, you inform search engines about the primary version of your content, avoiding such penalties.

Consolidation of Ranking Signals:

  • When multiple language versions of the same content exist, their SEO value (backlinks, traffic, etc.) can be split. Canonical tags consolidate this value to the primary page, enhancing its authority and ranking.
  • Focusing ranking signals on a single URL improves the overall ranking potential of the preferred version.

Improved Crawling and Indexing Efficiency:

  • Canonical tags help direct crawlers to the most important localized pages, reducing time spent on duplicates.
  • Ensures the preferred language version of a page is indexed, making it more discoverable and organized in search results.

Better User Experience:

  • Users are directed to the most relevant language version of the content, reducing confusion and improving their experience.
  • Ensures users and search engines are funneled to the best version of the localized page, maintaining consistent, high-quality content delivery.
