Hi - this is my personal website. I bring you a smattering of articles to read and comment on when you have time, images to soak in while you wander about the web and thoughts to ponder on while you drink your tea. I also tend to use this as a bit of a testing ground for new web design amd development, content management ideas and SEO testing, so occasionally the site will be in a bit of a flux with redesigns.
The Canonical link in a page's header lets the search engines know where the original page resides. Originally conceived for situations where articles were duplicated they would reference the original. Google tends to choose the oldest version of a page that it can find (but not the only method it uses) and any other pages with the same or very similar content are considered duplicates and will not do a well on the Search Engine Results Pages - SERPs and we want our pages to do well there for the traffic.
