I am trying to understand if canonical tags would really help our SEO efforts.
I am looking at adding canonical tags to an ecommerce site with thousands of products.
Here is how I intend to use the CT
these 3 pages would have the same tag
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/product-category/index.htm"/>
one page is the original one
than there is the same page sorted by price
and now the same but on page 2 of results
Would it really help to use the canonical tags and make all these pages the same canonically-wise?
They are not exactly the same, the sorting might make them show different results. And page 1 doesn't have the same results as page 2.
What do you guys suggest?
Thanks so much
