Hi my site was recently de-indexed on bing. 

 

Bing says: 

Discover
Discovered on
09 May 2019
Crawl
Last crawl attempted
20 Aug 2020 at 09:40
Crawl allowed?
Yes
Page Fetch
Successful
Indexing allowed?
Yes
Index
Canonical URL
- -
The inspected URL has been indexed successfully but there are some issues which might prevent us from serving it to our users. Please contact Bing Webmaster support for more details
 
The only reason shown for it not being indexed is Canonical URL.
 
I've found the following links: 
which refers to shopify website problems with duplicate titles and duplicate content.
which mentions google de-indexing because of duplicate Tags causing canonical problems.
 
Both sites mention modifying theme.liquid to tell crawlers Not to crawl the tags.
states the telling search engines to not crawl something is not a great method to fix this.
Instead, she states to: Use a 301 Redirect, Use Passive parameters in the Google Search Console, Use location hashes
 
I'm afraid I am totally over my head hear as I didn't know what canonical even meant before today.
 
I do have my shopify ecommerce site, and a wholesale site that is on a seperate domain. The wholesale site has links sending users back to my shopify site and some duplicate content.
any help would be greatly appreciated. 
 
sincerely

i contacted bing webmaster support.. but they suggested only to refer their guidelines . No more reason they share. 

I just putted meta tag between <head> </head> tags.

Like this 

<link rel="canonical" href="https:// yourdomainname.com/pageurl/" />
