Glad to see that Matt went out of his way to help us geeks and the StackOverFlow community!

In the future is there going to be some way for webmasters to do something like rel="canonical" across domains so if I want to syndicate a piece of content across two properties I own I can indicate which one is the original source? My understanding is that rel="canonical" is only meant to be used between pages on the same root domain today but I could be mistaken.

Syndicating content across your own domains is a common practice and will not be effected by this.

rel="canonical does work across domains.

Good to know, thanks! I wasn't sure if that was the case or not.

Is Google the only engine that supports it currently or is it standardized?
