I have just bought a new domain www.example.com ....

Which is better for SEO: http://example.com or http://www.example.com

I think people will make more links starting with www and will have more backlinks for the www one. Please give your suggestions and I need to launch the website as soon as possible.

If you have plans for future expansions you don't want cookie busting and using www to properly identify the web server is a good idea. – Fiasco Labs Mar 24 '13 at 0:16

It doesn't matter for SEO. But most people put www in front of websites, so I suggest you to use the WWW version.

Just make sure to redirect www to non-www or the opposite.

There are technical reasons for using www vs not-www but there is no difference for SEO. Some people like no-www because it's cleaner when printed in advertising and easier to type.
