Hi,

Accessing same content via multiple URLs causes content duplication issue and it affects ranking. To prevent this duplicate content issue you should "Canonical URLs". Canonical URLs tell the search engines that the URLs are actually one and same. For example, you have two links Link1 and Link2 which are pointing to the same page and you want Google to rank Link1 then use following Html tag

<link rel="canonical" href="Link1">

For more information, you can refer Google document on
