  • I usually duplicate products to create an another one from the previous configuration to eliminate creating from scratch. So setting up canonical URL is not a solution for my problem. During duplicating a product I don't want the meta fields to be filled.

If you go to your admin panel and navigate to

Admin Store -> Configuration -> Catalog > Search Engine Optimization

In the Search Engine Optimisation tab, you can find the following two entries:

Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Categories

Use Canonical Link Meta Tag For Products

This will not delete the redundant pages but will add the same canonical links in the head of your HTML files

Now when google indexes your site, it will probably still see both links, but since you added a canonical link to it, Google will now know that both links are the same page.
