If I have a page that is declared in the header: INDEX, FOLLOW


The page will be indexed and the links will be followed. Actually it's almost redundant this tag on a page you want indexed, just I am at the mercy of a 3rd party plugin that won't remove it. So.


Then further down the page there is a canonical URL that says, actually SE SPIDER you should go an index this other page because the one you are on only has a few things which are different from the one you are crawling, so best index that one.


The fact that the index,follow is in the header isn't going to confuse anyone is it? I am currently reviewing some SEO on a website and want to make sure I am drawing the right conclusions even if they defy logic.

I've just read these articles and come to the conclusion there is no confusion. They talk about link and ranking signals and which is the preferred to show in the SERPs. I am not an expert except I know how to read. I stuck with Google articles and did not read any articles which were not and thus, in my eyes, opinions of others.


This article describes how you can use canonical URLs to improve link and ranking signals for content available through multiple URL structures or via syndication.
In the world of content management and online shopping systems, it's common for the same content to be accessed through multiple URLs.

This part in the article is confusing.

Mark up the canonical page and any other variants with a rel="canonical" link element.
