Canonical URLs

Recommended Posts

I have a number of squarespace sites that use blogs. 

Occasionally I want to cross-post content across these sites. I don't want to damage SEO by having multiple pages of the same content therefore looking at using canonical URLs but there is no code injection for separate blog posts. 

Can anyone confirm that if I add a code block with the below inserted pointing back to the original version of that post this will be sufficient for search engines to recognize the first version of the blog post and therefore not hinder SEO for multiple blog posts displaying the same content. 

<link rel="canonical" href="https://example.com/blog/test-blog/" />

It won't work as you are looking to put a Canonical in place on a specific blog post. There is no code injection in posts - there should be SS! - and adding a code block will mean the the Canonical is added in the <body> section which means it will be ignored.

You may be able to used some kind of funky JQEURY to inject it into the header using code-injection at a site level, but I'm speculating and someone else might be able to advise if possible.
