I was wondering what I can do, so that when visitors/crawlers go to http://myblog.com, they'll automatically be forwarded to http://www.myblog.com, so http://www.myblog.com gets index'd, and http://myblog.com does not. Thanks.
This is one of those things that people debate endlessly (and pointlessly), but my preference is to use myblog.com, NOT http://www.myblog.com.
Regardless, here's two plugins:
actually, wordpress does that automatically now. it changes it according to whatever you have written in general options..
well RTL, I guess we both need to upgrade.
My preference is MyBlog.com as well. It's easier to market it that way, to cut out the rather pointless 'www.' - but I see big sites like Facebook have it rewritten to http://www.facebook.com, and I guess when you include the 'www.', it becomes a backlink on most places where it's posted.
Thanks for the information guys.
The common "geek" consensus is that http://www.domain.com implies a subdomain of domain.com .
However despite the push to remove the www from non-subdomain sites, the more common consensus is that people are simply more used to typing www in front of anything. Which probably stems from advertising (since the www immediately helps listeners associates a bunch of letters with a URL)
And you might want to resolve your post :)
