Canonical Tag: the experts explain

Last week at SMX West the three ‘big ones’, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo, announced the ‘biggest thing since Sitemaps’: Canonical Tags. With the Canonical Tag the duplicate content issue should belong to the history.

But how does this work exactly? A lot of experts have given their view on it. From Vanessa Fox on Searchengineland to Joost de Valk at his own blog, all the experts have given their explanation. And also Google, Microsoft and Yahoo gave their explanation.

The best way is to go right to the source. We informed you before that Google posted a long article about it on their webmastercentral blog, Microsoft and Yahoo did the same on theirs.

Now at his personal blog Matt Cutts gave a good explanation of what the Canonical Tag is all about. He was also interviewed last week at SMX and explained it in a very easy way. See the interview below.

Finally a  tip is to go to Searchengineland where Vanessa Fox did a very accurate explanation. Now you will know all!
