Just a few days ago, Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft announced their collaboration to support a new Web standard “Canonical URL Tag” to abolish duplicate content from the Internet world.

Now, Ask.com has announced its intentions to go Canonical! Here is the example of the screen shot of the tag, provided by Ask.com:

Canonical URL Tag

“To help meet this challenge, Ask is announcing today that we are joining forces with other major search engines in a timely partnership to support a special search index feature called "canonical URL tag". This feature gives webmasters an opportunity to set a "preferred" name for a page.”

Good to see that everyone is joining their hands for this gentle cause!
