Cross-post from Medium

github logo ・1 min read

Hello. I've written my original article at Medium. Now I want to post it at Dev to but don't want to have a bad influence on my SEO. As I understand, I should use Canonical URL, right? But when I add it in front of my article and save it, I do not see "originally published at" in front of it. How can I solve this issue?

In the meta at the top of your post, include the canonical_url variable. If you want to display it in your article, you have to add text manually.


Here's one from a recent article of mine:

In the metadata:

title: Roll your Own Redux With useContext & useReducer
published: true
tags: hooks,javascript,react
