Canonical Links for OpenCart

Though OpenCart has in-built canonical tags, however, these canonical links are not 100% as per the standards of SEO. It is evident that a lot of opencart users are facing the issue of duplicate pages, duplicate title, duplicate meta-description in their google search console. This affects the website SEO and eventually page rank drops. Using this extension it is proven the issue is fixed and the issue of duplicates drops down to zero or near zero in the search console.
