Why Sometimes No WWW

    When I went to ping some of my Hubs, I noticed there was no WWW-why?

      It's called a "Cannonical URL", meaning it makes either www. or non www the default in order to stop duplicate content. In the eyes of some search engines content on:

      www. test.com

      and

      test.com

      IS considered identical and therefore duplicate. Enforcing a canonical URL ensures that it isn't flagged and penalized. It's an SEO technique.

      I hope that's what you were referring to Gma big_smile

    Don't you still need the http:// either way? (or https:// when that applies)
