That’s an interesting case study… but maybe they used canonical tag the wrong way.. also we don’t know why their SEO agency did that… This blog post is pending an update so I will add more info about canonical based on your feedback and experience.

It can work as expected numerous times, then suddenly a redirect, an internal or external link gets pointed to a page, and suddenly the canonical gets thrown out the window. For me, the risk of ending up like verticaldescents.com, where a global template having a canonical pointing at the homepage was responsible for erasing 90% of their pages, and rankings/impressions/traffic from Google, meant that one head tag cost a company a truckload of money. A dozen digital agency staff, many very experienced, overlooked it, because it didn’t fail any test cases for pre-launch. Anyway – good article, good site – keep up the great work!

At best it is redundant, while at worst it can deindex most of a site or allow content to be tagged as duplicate and placed in the supplemental index (or not indexed at all) having the knockon effect of the domain flagged for spam.
