What is the difference between Canonical tag and 301
Please help me to know about What is the difference between Canonical tag and 301?
301 is web page redirection. If you like to move your particular page, it is the safest option.
Canonical URL is picking the best URL.
Which one is the best URL to pick?
A 301 Redirect is a command that redirects users and the search engines to a particular page. A 301 Redirect can be employed if the content of a page has been permanently moved or if you have created multiple versions of a homepage and only want the users and search engines to see one version.
The canonical tag is a Meta tag placed in the HTML header of a webpage. The tag, however, is not a redirect, so the users and search engines are not sent to another location, but a particular page is nominated for indexation with the search engines.
Its main purpose is to keep duplicated content out of the search engine index while consolidating a sites authority and PageRank into one URL.
A 301 redirect is designed to help users and search engines find pieces of content that have moved to a new URL. Adding a 301 redirect means that the content of the page has permanently moved somewhere else.
