    Exclamation Are Canonical Links recommended? Can they hurt or help a new site?


    I understand that if you have an established website and have many pages in the search engine it isn't the best idea to add Canonical Links.

    However I just made a new site and was wondering is it a good idea to add the Canonical Link right off to the front page for SEO reasons? Will this help a new site out?


    Thanks for your time.

    What do you mean by adding a canonical link. Any link can be canonical, i.e. - www & non-www; / & /index.html

    Do you mean adding the canonical tag? That can be added and would prevent the split up of link juice and PR - that would be helpful

    Yes adding the tag.
