    non canonical URLS???


    I've been looking at a few SEO tools, all of which say that I am not using a canonical link.
    This is what I have on my home page:

    <head>
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.mysitehere.co.uk"/>

    have I written this correctly?

    Should there be a space between " and /> so it is like this: .com" />

    I don't code, but that's how it is on my site.

    rel="canonical" should be used on the non-canonical versions of your pages to specify that another version is the correct one. Do you also have this code on the variants?
