Hi, I'm in need of some advice for correct use of canonical tags. The situation is as follows. We have a website that lists locations. Locations can belong to multiple categories, like: 'open on monday' and 'open at night'. Each category has it's own URL. So location A can be found at www.mydomain.com/open-monday/location-a and also on www.mydomain.com/open-at-night/location-a. Some locations only fall under one category.
Would the case where one location falls under multiple categories and thus can be found at multiple URLs be considered duplicate content? Should I use a canonical tag on one of them? And is there a logic behind which one to choose as preferred URL, because both URLs are sort of equal, there is no 'best' URL.
Also what happens if a canonical tag is used on the preferred page? (with the URL of that page). Is that a problem?
(f.e.: on www.mydomain.com/open-monday/location-a the canonical tag points to that same URL).
Thanks for any help!
