I would like to know if the Custom Canonical URL on the post page, is the same as rel=canonical
that Google mention here :
"We've had a lot of interest in these meta tags, particularly in how the syndication-source
tag relates to rel=canonical
. After evaluating this feedback, we’ve updated our system to use rel=canonical
instead of syndication-source
, if both are specified."
My main motive is to be able to give credit to original news source that I will have on news category on my site.
