    Hello SEOs,

    I have to create page in best scenario under . Currently not possible due to some circumstances.

    As alternative I can create the page under Here I can put canonical to

    Do I loose seo juice if I point my backlinks to which is actually a 301 to the other url, which is pointing to the first page with canonical. Kind of wired for me so I hope someone who is expert can suggest me better solution.
    My theory behind is, that the baacklinks will point the which is redirect , so search engines will think I actually want to rank, which is not the case.(therefore I have the canonical but ... I guess it has less weight than 301)

    The point that I don't want to rank page, is because the "somepage" in my case is not really good, and as I know more slashes equals harder to rank for exact short KW. Example - is maybe better for exact ranking for "someproduct" but not ranking the "category" and all products under. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Please explain your suggestion.
