      hi i am using WebMatrix seo to check my site, it has giving me 2 errors,

       

      The page contains multiple canonical formats.

      The page with URL "http://www.petland.ie/" can also be accessed by using URL "http://www.petland.ie/index.html".

      Search engines identify unique pages by using URLs.  When a single page can be accessed by using any one of multiple URLs, a search engine assumes that there are multiple unique pages. Use a single URL to reference a page to prevent dilution of page relevance. You can prevent dilution by following a standard URL format.

       

      need some help with this, can some explain to me.
