Installation for SEO (2 posts)

    For SEO purposes I would like to know if installation in the public-html area is better or should the installation of WP be in the root directory. I may have these confused Example when I do and FTP to my site I can either install in the (http://www) area or in the folder before this. As I have it now setup you can type "http://peterobertson.com or http://www.peterobertson.com or http://www.peterobertson.com and you still end up on my blog.

    So my questions are: Which area is better for SEO purposes.
    And do extraneous folders and plain html files that I use for redirects have an effect on SEO.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    it does not matter if you put your files in www or public_html
    in both case

    http://yourdomain.com
    and http://www.yourdomain.com

    must work.
    If it doesnt - check out your MX details or your .htaccess file
