What is a canonical issue?

A canonical issue is exactly that, an issue with your rel="canonnical", what's the issue?

Actually I have no much idea about it, and that didn't really answer my question.

Ok so read up on canonical (Wiki) or Complete Guide to Rel Canonical - How To and Why (Not) (Moz).
"A canonical link element is an HTML element that helps webmasters prevent duplicate content issues by specifying the "canonical" or "preferred" version of a web page as part of search engine optimization. It is described in RFC 6596, which went live in April 2012."
So if you have a canonical issue it could be;
- You are using $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] to generate the canonical which would mean any old junk in the url will become the "preferred" version.
- You have each filtered results page using it's own canonical url instead of using the unfiltered default view url.
- You have set the main url as the canonical for every page; e.g. <link rel="canonical" href="http://yourdaomain.com/">.
These are the three most common issues with canonical.
