Clarify: Search engines employ URL normalization in order to assign importance to web pages
There is a "Please Clarify" request after the text "Search engines employ URL normalization in order to assign importance to web pages". I think I can clarify this, but I am theorizing, and I am not an expert in this domain. My clarification attempt: Search Engines will give you an SEO penalty if you post duplicate content. By using URL normalization, you can signal to a search engine that you have duplicate content. This way the search engine knows to only use one version of the duplicate content, and the search engine will not give you a penalty for containing duplicate content. Thus the search engine will assign your website a higher importance, and your website will show up more in search results. Okthatsnice (talk) 02:32, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
