Automatic canonical url's

  • I don’t see any canonical url references in my posts or taxonomy archives. Doesn’t Rank Math automatically add these?

  • I’ve got parameterized url’s (dynamic filtering) that I want to make sure Google doesn’t crawl.


    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Rank Math will automatically add the canonical tags if the archives have been set to index on the Titles & Meta settings page.
    If this is not working as expected with the same settings, please share one of the affected links on the sensitive data section so that we can advise further.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    Got it! It’s a staging site and I have the WordPress Reading setting to disallow search engines. I removed this setting and I can see the canonical reference.

    Thanks, love Rank Math!!
