Use Rel=Canonical to solve Duplicate Content issues

Google, MSN, Yahoo jointly support CANONICAL tag on February 2009, used to avoid duplicate content issues. Sometimes several URLs can pointing the same page that affects whole website in ranking.

Here are typical variation of Homepage URL:
www.yourdomain.com
www.yourdomain.com/home.html
yourdomain.com
yourdomain.com/home.html

By using Canonical tag, you can specify your preferred version among various URL. Then Link juice focused on single version of URL, simultaneously increase the website ranking. A Path should be placed in Header and looks like:

<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.yourdomain.com" />

Some of them in confused state “When to use 301 over rel=canonical tag?”
Simple, for permanent redirection use 301, to avoid multiple versions of pages in a website use canonical tag.
