Duplicate Content / Canonical Tag

  • Resolved Swen
    Rank Math free


    I have a website which only serves as a directory and archive for our podcasts.

    As soon as a new podcast episode is published, a new post (custom post type) is created with the plugin “Podcast Importer SecondLine”.

    The Google ranking for this particular podcast website is not very important to me.

    However, I would like to promote the episodes on one of my other websites and thus ideally also positively influence the ranking of the website (in the description/shownotes I also have a transcript of each episode)

    I would like it best if I could also import the podcast on this website with the plugin “Podcast Importer SecondLine”.
    But that would be duplicate content, right?

    Is there any other way – except that I exclude the specific podcast website from Google indexing – so that I don’t have problems with duplicate content?

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    You can set the canonical of one of them pointing to the URL of the other (to the one you want to rank on Google) so it won’t count as duplicated for Google.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    You can customize the following filter, with the help of a developer, to automatically change the canonical URL of your podcasts post to your episodes.

     * Allow changing of the canonical URL.
     * @param string $canonical The canonical URL.
    add_filter( 'rank_math/frontend/canonical', function( $canonical ) {
    	return $canonical;

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
