I have a website set up at
www.example.com, and I have
example.com set to redirect to
The problem is that it's set to redirect directly to the homepage. For example,
example.com/page/123 takes you to
www.example.com instead of
www.example.com/page/123. The reason I'm doing this is because I don't have access to the .htaccess file, and the only solution I can use is setting up a 301 redirect.
My question is if this will negatively impact my SEO rating at all.
I never link to the non-www version of the site. It's mainly a convenient way to get to the homepage of the site, which is hosted at the
www. version. I doubt anyone will take a
www. link to a page, strip the
www. and link to that version instead (which won't work). Thus, I don't think there are any cases of anyone using the naked domain to get to anything but the homepage of the site. Am I overlooking anything?
