    does enabling canonical, fetch the settings such as Description, Tags and other automatically??

    [disabling it doesn’t fetch Description i guess]

    1. Hi Devdatt Dhakane,

      Just select ALL in one from SEO option and that will only add all the things automatically and if you have issue/problem then let us know.

  3. I’m trying to solve duplication issue on amp pages
    The canonical link is added to the original pages seems like it’s not doing the trick
    My question is Do I have to enable Canonical from Yoast option under my SEO Plugin Integration?

    1. Hi Poonam Jamuni,

      No, it will work automatically but if you change the canonical links of the Yoast then you need to enable this option and if you have any issues/problems then please let us know.
