Check your website is canonical proof or not –

A canonical issue is a situation when your website is mistakenly taken as more than one.

For example, if your website name is www.cba.com.

One user searches your website as https://cba.com

The second user searches your website as http://cba.com

The third user searches your website as cba.com

So what happens Google will consider this one website as Four website because it is opening in four different ways, not in one

Fix this issue by the below code

 

Now if you use this code then your website will be redirected to the http://www.cba.com/” />

Which means that if any user searches your website from the above four mentioned way but it will be redirected to https://cba.com, then your website is canonical proof.

You just have to see that the code is present or not on your website.

In order to check you first have to go to your and press, ctrl+U and your view source would be opened, search there that the code is present or not.

That is it, nothing more you have done.

What is the canonical tag?

The canonical tag is also known as” rel canonical”

A canonical tag is an element or code present in a website, which tells the search engines which website has its master copy or original copy.

Focus in the long term-

If you think your blog can become overnight famous and popular, that’s wrong.

Don’t give false hopes to yourself just be realistic.

The blogs which are now running successfully is because they are doing blogging on average for the last five to six years.

They succeeded because they focused on long term goals but not for short term goals.

Think for long term goals if you want to be a successful blogger.
