I am putting together SEO requirements for a project and it includes adding canonical tags.
I definitely want to add canonical tags to all pages so that pages that are sorted differently or pages with URLs with tracking parameters or sessions IDs are still referring back to the original URL.
But there is this situation that I am not sure.
Let's say a user browse the site in different flows. For example, one flow is GENDER, then CATEGORY, then BRAND. And another could be CATEGORY > GENDER > BRAND
Both pages will have very similar content. But should they be linked canonically? I don't think so.
Let's say the title of one page is GENDER CATEGORY BRAND at store.com , and the other page is CATEGORY GENDER BRAND at store.com
There are 2 different pages. More ways to get found by seachers. Why would I want them to be treated as one?
I appreciate your feedback.
