There may be some cases where different URL's refer to the same page. For example, www.abc.com, www.abc.com/, www.abc.com/index

In such cases using a rel=canonical tag, you can tell search engines as to which of those URL's you would like to be shown in search results.

A htaccess file allows decentralized management of a server's configuration. You can read about it here

Remove your blog URL from the thread. If you don't do it, a moderator may delete this thread.

The concept of conacalization is in general applicable to websites and not blogs. Since yours is a blog  powered by wordpress, you need not bother about it.

By the way, its not at all advisable to play with any of those functions as it can mess things up and lock you out of your own web server Tongue out

We learn things better by messing them up. But all such experiments should be preferrably done with a new hosting account ( or an account which has no hosted sites ) and not with one on which a website is hosted. If we mess up an active hosting account, things would become too difficult. Innocent

If learning is a concern that too playing with HTAccess, I guess either create a subdomain and play there else for indepth, create a virtual PC and play there in your computer..

As for most of the bloggers, rarely you may ever need to know HTaccess even exisits :P

Of course, bloggers rarely need to play with htaccess files. And as you have said, the best place to play is our own computer rather than the server that is serving its visitors.

SO do I need to do anything at all then ? I use wordpress platform and should I do anything or is it done by itself?

In general, I dont think anything is needed with htaccess

Just follow the rule : Don't touch something until they should be. Wink

Wordpress is a complete CMS. Though I'm not a WordPress user, I sure that the coders of WordPress wouldn't have done something as silly as making a user edit the .htaccess files instead of providing that functionality in the DashBoard. Undecided

htaccess can be used to leverage browser caching which improves page load time. Follow the below link to implement browser caching.
