    Canonical Tags Question

    I am adding Canonical tags to my pages, is this code correct ?

    http://www.dating-asian-singles.com/

    Code:
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.dating-asian-singles.com/" />
    http://www.dating-asian-singles.com/signup-stepone

    Code:
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.dating-asian-singles.com/signup-stepone" />
    and so on, and so for each page ?

    your help appreciated

    Canonical URLS are a google invention, not a W3C one, so to find out about it, you'd have to look at Google pages for developers.

    You can specify a canonical URL in two ways:

    Add a rel="canonical" link to the <head> section of the non-canonical version of each HTML page.
    So only for pages who are URLS leading to the same content, and only the ones you consider "copies" (so the original/main/indexable page does not need a canonical meta). You also don't need the whole URL with schema and domain: they can be relative, so
    <link rel="canonical" href="/signup-stepone" />
    would be fine.
