I have set www version as preferred in Google Search Console. I haven't touched the non-www version for a long time. I use only the www version for sitemap uploading, error fixing and setting structured data.

However, in Google Search Console my non-www site is in the first place when sorted by property health. Why would that be?


A live version of a website is almost always going to have errors and other negative "site health" issues.

By comparison a domain that automatically redirects to another version (www in this case) has zero errors, zero HTML improvements that are needed, etc.

Accordingly the (very poorly implemented) sort by Site Health is pretty useless and no cause for concern.

  • It will never be fixed as far as I know until they adjust the way the sorting is done unfortunately. – Kalee Raisor Dec 20 '17 at 16:53
  • ah ok ok unless it won't affect my site that's fine. – Vinoli Senanayake Dec 20 '17 at 18:39
