and the same page can be accessed by entering the URL;

http://www.example.com/product.php?item=swedish-fish&category=gadgets

So now you can simply add the <link> tag to specify your preferred version;

<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.example.com/product.php?item=iphone" />

inside the <head> section of the duplicate content URLs and Google will understand that the duplicates all refer to the canonical URL.

It not only will work with Google, but with all major search engines such as MSN and Yahoo!. For WordPress users, a plugin for Canonical URLs is also available.

Make sure to read about this issue in more detail at head on to Google webmaster central blog.

    Although I understand what this tag do but I am still trying to figure out how to best apply this in any website or blog.

    For example I have installed the Yoast plugin and what it really do is add this tag to header of my theme which actually adds canonical tag to every page of my blog. Is it right? I mean this has to be added to only specific pages which can be taken as duplicate by search engines but how.

    Any more insight will be helpful.
