Hello. I have some loose ends - not being 100 % sure of. Indices but no firm proof :-)
I understood that having the engines spider bot the http://www.domain.com and domain.com url versions (canonical url version I think) means that the back links get diluted between those two versions and the SE's rank them both lower instead of ranking one version higher.
WHat do I do? Use rel 301 to direct all the page downloads from the domain.com to the http://www.domain.com instead? Delete the domain.com version n google tools?
I understood that the http://www.domain.com is the version mostly linked to.
I see that wordpress.org doesn't apply the www.
Is it an automatic redirect in the .htaccess file causing this?
WHy is the site ULR specified to domain.com in the settings/general in the WP administration panel?
DOes one change it there or in the DNS at the hosting company or in a third place. SOmewhere I read that GOogle tools is not the place to change it.
