Opencart integrates the "Canonical" tag in the product and category pages.

Why not the homepage? Of no interest ?

Interest on other pages? Onformations? ...

Thanks for your opinion and advice.

Because categories and products on the home page might be handled by extension modules where these modules can be removed from the admin as opposed to have a dynamic product page where the product page itself will always exist as it is unlikely a store owner will want to deactivate all products when the store is running live.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

The canonical url tag is only necessary when you can have multiple urls leading to the same page.
That is the case with product page and category pages but not information pages or the home page (by default).
There is no harm in adding them, they just will probably always be the same as the requested url.

Hello there,

We hope you are doing well.

Canonical tag is used to avoid indexing of multiple versions of website URLs in search engine if your website's homepage doesn't have multiple version then its ok if there is no canonical.

Thanks!!!!
