So I did the misstake of using a temporary url a while ago when launching my web site and called it http://web.mysite.com

Now when google indexes it, even that the web. is not the primary url anymore it still uses that over the http://www.mysite.com

Is there any way I can change this? Unfortunately I cant remove the web.mysite.dom binding from IIS since all Google links refer to that and I cannot use wildcard binding on the actual server.

I have google analytics enabled with the correct url (www.mysite.com).

Is there a way to enter some kind of meta data that enforces the robots to see the address as www.mysite.com?

If you implement google webmaster tools it does give you some options over how the domain is displayed but I don't know if it would help your particular situation.

Thanks, I've implemented it. I'll get back in a day or two if this solved the problem. – Eric Herlitz Jan 19 '12 at 9:57
