    Multiple Canonicals


    Due to dev error we currently have multiple canonicals on our product pages.

    Although this is being fixed I wondered what the latest is on how Google handle multiple canonicals.

    My gut feeling says that Google either ignores or chooses the most appropriate.

    The issue is that one canonical points to http and the other points to https (obviously the preferred option)

    As we have just switched to HTTPS, I don't want to submit a new site map until I know how Google will treat these canonicals as I don't want Google to crawl the HTTPS version from the sitemap, find a canonical to the http version and get confused resulting in Google not indexing the new HTTPS version.

    On top of all of this, there is a redirect put in place for all http urls to https versions - however Magento has generated a 302 rather than a 301 - another problem.

    **Mind F**k!!**

    Any advice guys?

    On https://webmasters.googleblog.com/20...canonical.html is written that Google ignores all rel=canonical. But that's article from 2013, so it can be changed at this time. You need to change 302 to 301 fur sure.
