    That is correct. Also choose the same version in webmaster tools

    Hello ,

    Please support my point here:Old, thin pages out-performing newer, content-rich pages?

    There is a discussion which i think all experts are not understanding the real meaning of canonical

    Obviously you are right because you tell SE that please consider this link as a main page.

    Canonical helps you when you ranking the keywords or helps to prevent the content
    Two ways to add the Canonical tags:-
    For Html Sites :- <link rel="canonical" href="http://example.com/wordpress/seo-plugin/">
    For Dynamic sites: - You can add plugin from plugin section
    For E-commerce sites: - you can enable or disable canonical tag from backend side.
