Hi all,

I was wondering if it is possible for Google to diregard the canonical tag, if for example they decide it is wrongly put based on behavioural data.

On the <snip> Blog's individual blog posts there is a canonical tag for the www.example.com/blog/details . In my opinion it should not be there, and I've put request to our Engineering team for removal some time ago. Interestingly, all blog posts are indexed and got decent amount of organic traffic despite the tag.

What do you think? Could it be that Google would disregard the tag based on usage data from let's say GA?
