I noticed that wordpress.org and wordpress.com do not use the www. in front of thier domain name. Most other blogs do use www. I checked the google site: command for wordpress with and without the www. and for example the site:www.wordpress.org had 74 pages logged in google however site:wordpress.org (w/o www.) had 4 million logged. Of course you can't do a google pr on http://www.wordpress.org as it auto diverts to wordpress.org. When you do a google pr on say http://www.beachrealty.com it is a 4, but for beachrealty.com (w/o www.) it is only a 2. This is drastic. Neither wordpress.org or .com use the www. Can anyone shed some light as to which is best. Since I started my blog, I now have 6 google pages logged for http://www.virginia-beach-real-estate-online.com, but remove the www. and I have 30 pages in google using the site command. If you refer to the google site command and the google submitme page, their sample says use the www. Is there an impact in using it or not using it. It seems to affect a lot of google reports and scores.
