Use the following citation structure to caption each image that you share: Image originally from [Article Title/Hyperlink] by [BigRentz/Hyperlink].

To add a canonical URL, use a <link> tag in the head section of your HTML.

Plugins like Yoast allow you to easily add a canonical tag under Advanced > Canonical URL.
When citing a PDF or Ebook, you must link to the landing page that the document is hosted on instead of the PDF. You can find most of our Ebooks through the Equipment Rental Guides page.
