    so why did you feel you needed to add .html?

    I would firstly add the canonical tag and see if the issue is resolved.

    Would a canonical link like the one shown below resolve the double content issue? THE KEYWORD HERE IS THE HYPERLINK FOR THE ORIGINAL URL

    <a href="URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" target="_blank" rel="canonical noopener noreferrer">KEYWORD</a></em></span><br />

    I have an idea that the canonical tag has been place wrong and should be placed like this:


    <link href="URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" rel="canonical" />
    Can you tell me which one is correct??

    <link href="URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" rel="canonical" />

    This should be placed in the head section of your page.

    Adding .html though was pointless and most people try and remove it not add it

    As well as creating a canonical tag, how about redirecting the non .html page to the .html?

    You can simply use <link href="URL OF ORIGINAL PAGE" rel="canonical" /> as mentioned by @chedders

    There many factors you can used to remove all this. But I suggest you to use canonical tags to specifies you exact page.
