What is an Alternate Page?

An Alternate Page is a page that is not the main page of your website. It can be a page about a specific topic, or a page that is not officially affiliated with your website.
When you create an Alternate Page, you need to use the proper canonical tag when you publish it. This will help ensure that people know which page to use when referencing your content on the web.

Please check the Example below:-
