Description

This v. small module should probably be a patch. It simply takes the canonical source as defined by the domain_source module (under 'domain access' options when editing node) and uses that to build a canonical meta tag. Canonical meta tags can aid SEO. 

whether google frowns on multiple domains pointing to the same content, i am still not 100% sure, a little bit of digging and you will see opinions are divided. But google itself does cover the issue pretty well here ...
