Quite simply, when you have two equal (or very similar) pages and you don't need both live pages for some other business reason, you should use a redirect. Examples of using a redirect: Products you no longer carry. Outdated pages that you don't want to update Banner Design (update them first). Pages removed from your site. A page that has been moved to a different URL. When you purchased an expired domain to transfer its domain authority to your site.

Using a redirect can also slow down how often Banner Design search engines crawl that old URL - which isn't a problem if you plan to move it to the new one, but could be a problem if you plan to cancel it. When to use a canonical There are many interesting uses for canonical tags. But in general, I like to think of canonical tags as band-aids for poor or unavoidable URL structure. It is the last resort. If you can't prevent the URL from being crawled or seen and it is very similar to another URL, the canonical tag is your savior. Here are some examples: A one-page “print version”. Faceting and sorting of pages (for example, a URL that shows the same products but sorted by price from top to bottom). Unwanted settings - possibly from Banner Design paid search campaign or other. Using a canonical can prevent those pesky marketing URL strings from showing up in search results. Products that live in multiple categories. If you can access a product through multiple categories on the site, you might want to funnel them all to a single version of the product page - especially if the product page is the same for each category it appears in.
