    Hi all,

    I need help on setting up MaxCDN. There's a tutorial in MaxCDN about adding canonical tags using .htaccess for SEO purposes. I'm kinda dumb on this and need some advice/ help on what's all this about. From the code I can guess that it directs .htaccess to label all those cached file with canonical tag. But that's my guess. I need some verifications from you expert. (to correct whatever wrong you see)

    Currently my site is optimized by Yoast WordPress SEO and I can see the plugin adding canonical tag on every pages. Therefore do I need those extra code in .htaccess as recommended in MaxCDN's tutorial?

    Below is the code, and here is the link to the tutorial page - http://support.maxcdn.com/howto/use-seo-with-cdn/


    Code:
    <FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf|webp|html)(\.gz)?(\?.*)?$">
       <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
          RewriteEngine On
          RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
          RewriteRule .* - [E=CANONICAL:http://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI},NE]
          RewriteCond %{HTTPS} =on
          RewriteRule .* - [E=CANONICAL:https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI},NE]
       </IfModule>
       <IfModule mod_headers.c>
          Header set Link "<%{CANONICAL}e>; rel=\"canonical\""
       </IfModule>
    </FilesMatch>
    
    Any words would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Can anybody comment on this? Or is this the wrong section to ask about coding? Mod please kindly move the thread to the right place if it's latter.

    Thanks!
