Hello all,

I am confused with the implementation of "rel=canonical" tag. I have already implemented the same on the index.asp version of the page which has resulted in the page getting the same page rank as that of the www version of the page.
Why did this happen ?


How and when will google transfer the link weight of the index.asp of the www version of the site.

Any light on the issue would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

That is the idea - all variations of a URL are treated the same when the rel=canonical link is correctly implemented.

Because we cannot see Google's "back office" all we have to go with is the toolbar data. It's a good sign not to see mismatched PageRank between two URLs that retrieve the same content.
