[Plugin: FV All in One SEO Pack] Canonical URLs (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I noticed that Canonical URLs are turned off in the default settings. I am not sure, but it sounds as if it would be good for them to be on. Is there any benefit to leaving them off?

    Thanks.

    Also, when I activate canonical URLs with this plugin, in some cases they appear twice in the page source code: once with double quotes (" ") and once with single quotes (' '). Is this normal? Other SEO plugins only insert the canonical URL once.

    Thanks.

    Hi Mark,

    Canonical tags are not at all necessary in most properly set up sites. Google and the other engines will figure out what is your page. If the canonical function doesn't work correctly you can actually damage your rankings very badly.

    We don't believe in living dangerously with SEO. What's important is your content and basic site structure and your page title and page description tags. After that, it's all backlinks and popularity.

    On the other hand, if you do have a site with a lot of URL variations (a shopping site for instance), the canonical tag can be very useful. Therefore if you need it, you can go and turn canonical URLs on.

    I'll look into the issue with double quotes. This may be an issue with your theme.

    Making the web work for you, Alec
