What is the use of canonical tag?

    The canonical tag is designed to minimize crawl errors and duplicate content in your website.The purpose is to help the search engines understand that you intend for one specific page on your website to be the true page.

    Canonical tag is used to save your site from duplicate contentr issue. Like, for example you created a site based on australia nad you fetch the information about australia from wilipedia. You just copy the content from there and paste on your site. In search engine terms it is a issue of spamming. But if you will use canonical tag in your site then google count you site as a new one but the source of information is counted to wikipedia. Google will not ban your site.
