Canonical Tag and Content Pillar

I have a content pillar strategy made with blog posts. I'm a MOZ customer and I can see all of my hhtps://blog. pages are missing the cannonical tag. From why I understand this is a duplicated content issue where google crawl isn't sure which page to post first. I found multiple suggestions as to what to do but wanted some feedback first:

- Make the canonical tag the same url of that particular blog

- Make the canonical Tag the url of the pillar page to which that particular blog is linked 

 

PS: I have the configuration of this as Hubspot suggest in: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/articles/kcs_article/cos-blog/how-does-hubspot-address-duplicate-conte...

 

According to MOZ I need to solve this, but I'm not sure what's the best practice. Haven't found much info, from those two options which one should I do???

Q: I'm a MOZ customer and I can see all of my hhtps://blog. pages are missing the cannonical tag. Should I do A or B ??

-a- Make the canonical tag the same url of that particular blog

-b- Make the canonical Tag the url of the pillar page to which that particular blog is linked

 

Short A: n/a

 

Longer A:

Have you checked the page source of the blog posts in question to make sure this behavior isn't limited to just a few bad apples? If so, modify the cannonical url setting per blog post.

Otherwise, use the HubSpot recommended default (option 'a') unless you have a very specific purpose for doing otherwise -- e.g., you've basically copied your pillar page content to your blog posts or vise versa. (not recommended)
