I have a photo sharing site Zoomin photography club . When I submitted my site urls (https and http) on google search console, I saw duplicate content warning. After a long research I used canonical tag on header section.But the problem did not solved. Than I used 301 redirect ( http to https )and canonical tag both. the problem got more complex. Finally I removed the canonical tags from my site but kept 301 redirect…Am I right ?? any further suggestion ??
My current Index coverage are as follows
Submitted URL not selected as canonical -151 pages
Duplicate page without canonical tag -21 pages
Alternate page with proper canonical tag -17
