Give Google Examples Of Canonical URL Issues

On Sunday I reported about a canonical URL issue with Google that may have caused major turbulence with the Google search results last week. Well, Google said they need examples to investigate.

In short, there seemed to have been a possible bug with Google Search where it was showing the wrong URLs for pieces of content across the web last week. I can’t imagine it was a very widespread issue but it did seem to impact a number of publishers.

It may have been the reason for that unconfirmed Google update on the 23rd. Anyway, I wrote about the situation over here and it seems Google does not have enough information to dig in.

Danny Sullivan from Google wrote on Twitter “Just FYI, we’ll look into these reports, but to date, I’ve only seen one site actually give their domain name and an example. If others want to share actual examples of where they see this in Search Console, we can forward those along.”

John Mueller said something similar:

So send both of them, or maybe just John, examples of this issue.
