After having read various articles on this site about WWW or Non-WWW website setup, here, here and here, and after having setup a correct redirection rule in .Htaccess to at least eliminate duplicate contents (currently the non-www solution (e.g.
http://website.com) I have a feeling that my site rank less since I changed this.
My confusion was strengthened by these two opponents:
Could the change of
http://website.com have a factual impact on ranking? Google does not explicitly say either is better or worse. Are they holding information back?
I am confused fellow folks...
As much as I would like to separate facts from fiction, I am aware that not all the good valid information is written. Not on google webmaster site and perhaps not elsewhere. If so it seems out of date!
Does or does not not a WWW domain impact seo/rank better than its NON-WWW version?
(Given that you have setup a proper redirect to avoid duplicates and go with one)
Thanks very much for your light.
