    So I ran my website trough onpage.org and overall my onpage seo is good.

    Except my homepage.. I get the error canonicalized url or something like that.

    What the f... is that and how do I fix that?

    You have a canonical tag there in your homepage code I'd guess. Its a tag that says one page is essentially identical to another page and Google should ignore the one and just give credit to the other. Its good for avoiding duplicate intrasite content.

    I changed my url in Yoast under the Canonical option without the www.

    Hopefuly this will work.

    I've read articles, but its still a bit abracadabra to me to be honest..
