Title: Website with www or without www?
Post by: stonewood on 07-17-2014, 05:37:53
I want to start my new kitchen website. My question is Url with www or without www which one is better? Are they indicating different website or same? If my site opens on both urls ie. with www and without www then will it be Url duplication? Will my backlink traffic be divided on 2 different Url Paths? Please help me to solve this issue.
Thanks.

No not duplication!
Traffic will not be divided

which one we have to keep, this is very easy to identify.
just add your url in google, see which type of url you get & keep that type of URl & for other URL, redirect to main.
If you have new domain then you can keep with www. domain as a default.

If your site opens on both urls ie. with www and without www then will it be Url duplicate. So  either you have open your website in one mode with www or without www.

I simply went to google and wrote "bw-trophies" and after that "knowledge land and ventures" and clicked on the connections and it met expectations. WWW is fundamentally outdated and isn't required in any case for a page to work. Possibly you have to attempt another web program.

You can choose whatever you want, www or non-www. I usually go with non-www. Here's a post that might help you decide - http://www.hyperarts.com/blog/www-vs-non-www-for-your-canonical-domain-url-which-is-best-and-why/

The important thing is to create redirects. If you have both versions: www and non-www, Google will see it as duplicate, two separate sites, which is bad.

Here's something from Matt Cutt's blog:

"Yes. Suppose you want your default url to be http://www.example.com/ . You can make your webserver so that if someone requests http://example.com/, it does a 301 (permanent) redirect to http://www.example.com/ . That helps Google know which url you prefer to be canonical. Adding a 301 redirect can be an especially good idea if your site changes often (e.g. dynamic content, a blog, etc.)."

If you don't create a redirection to your preferred URL, your backlinks will get divided depending on what people will link to. If one links to the www version, and another one links to the non-www version, then you'll have 2 separate backlinks for each version of your site. If you create a 301 redirection, this problem will be solved.

You can add "www." in front of the domain name and all is fine. Your domain name does not include the "www" - that part of an address is known as the sub-domain. It points to a folder on your web site. Your website should also respond with the same content when a user types www.example.com, because the www. prefix is very common and many users will assume they must provide it.

From my point of view- if you using www or non-www. It depend on you but what is important here that you redirects your url to main urls. which you wants for all future reference. so it is good to redirect your url to default one. If not doing this that will be problem for your site. The traffic you get will divided in both condition by using www or non-www. You have getting 2 back for same url. so redirect your non-www page to default page www, that is good for site.

Your website showing in Search engine with & without "WWW" , search engine will be consider as 2 urls . So we need to avoid to creating the ht access file .

First you have to choose whether you want to go with www or non www then you have to redirect all the urls in to our preferred one.
yes having two different Urls for a single page leads to duplicate issues.

It depends on your choice to run a site over the internet with www or not with www. So there is an option given in your Cpanel about how is your domain name that you want to run it. It your domain is too long then it will be beneficial for you not to use www and if it is short enough then you can use it.

A website can have any valid fully qualified domain name.It does not matter if you have www in the URL or not, as long as you use the same URL always

Using www  makes you more prepared to handle the challenges of growing a web site beyond a single server. It can be done without using www in many circumstances, but it’s much easier with.

This is canonical issue and you need to fix your website with www, but first you need to check your website urls, what type of urls indexed in google with www or without www.

I think that you can use whichever you like! In the past, www prefix was preserred in order to distinguish web servers from ftp and other servers. In the present, nobody really cares about that anymore. And it will be still good to accept both with and without www prefix.

These are the two version of website you can choose either www or without www. You have to select one as your main url, From search engine point of view Google treat these as two different url have same content, best way to resolve is to redirect to single url.

Choosing www or non www option is not an issue or will not give you priority but you cant choose both at the same time. Coz Google read only single domain and if they find both www and non www definitely will get confused and stop looking your website.

You can include "www." before the area name and all is fine. Your space name does exclude the "www" - that part of an address is known as the sub-area. It focuses to an organizer on your site. Your site ought to likewise react with a similar substance when a client sorts www.example.com, in light of the fact that the www. prefix is extremely basic and numerous clients will accept they should give it.
