I'm going to explain my issue of canonical tag. So if anyone know where I'm wrong or doing it in wrong manner, please correct me or if it is right then please suggest me why its not working.
Few days ago i just make my own blog and just doing all on-page activity to make it better. Today I've applied canonical tag to my blog so it will not create any issue in future related to duplicate content.
So I've applied canonical tag in head section of my website
<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.forbesbyte.com/" />
Let's come to main issue as i know that when we applied canonical tag somewhere Google will treat that URL as parent URL and its similar URL redirects to defined URL in tag. For example-
www.forbesbyte.com ----> http://www.forbesbyte.com
https://forbesbyte.com -----> http://www.forbesbyte.com
http://forbesbyte.com -----> http://www.forbesbyte.com
But my URL is not redirected to specified URL in Canonical Tag so could anyone help me with the same.
Thanks in Advance
