.htaccess redirect... do you send the non-www to the www or the www to the non-www?..

Comments (16)



I wonder if keyword density matters... so if your keyword is "my domain" then in the non www a greater percentage of your domain name is "my domain" because the www adds 3 additional letters?.

Doubt it... and i'm sure it doesnt matter where you redirect everything but i'm doing this to all my sites tonight so I fiugred id ask..

Comment #1



I redirect everything to www. as in every non-computer savvy persons mind they associate all sites with the www.whatever.tld..

Comment #2



Www here forced. As I always say, doesn't matter, pick one and keep it that way for the life of the domain...

Comment #3



I like to mix it up. Long domain name... no www. Short name... I'll think about it. I really don't think it matters much though...

Comment #4



When I do it, I redirect www to non-www. Sometimes I don't bother...

Comment #5



It really does matter.

Search engines often see them as different addresses. If you have half your links to non and half to www you are splitting your inlinks......

Comment #6

And this is why you set redirect in mod_rewrite, isn't it?..

Comment #7

Yep. Make sure everyone is linking the same one...

Comment #8



People are tards. my entire university uses www.subdomain.SCHOOL.edu I guess just because people associate EVERYTHING with www.SOMETHING.

It would just be so much easier and make so much more damn sense if it were:.

Learn.ex.edu.

Studentservices.ex.edu.

But no....

So www. is my vote...

I use www on sites where it is just one site per domain, and use .htaccess to redirect.

It amazes me how many big BIG websites use either www or non-www and don't redirect the other. Fuckin annoying when you know the site, type it in and have to go back and add a www after getting 'page not found'...

Comment #10



I usually redirect to non-www. What annoys me is when sites don't redirect at all and have different cookies for the www and non-www website. So you have to log in twice if just some links point/redirect to the other version...

Comment #11



Redir to the WWW because you may need to subdomain somewhere along the way. Doing it this way up front keeps everything organized...

Comment #12



I use www..

The question is how do some sites have 2 different things with and without www. Is it just a www subdomain or am I missing something?..

Comment #13



I just don't understand why a lot of popular sites can't be accessed withoute www, I can't explain how this things annoy a lot of times I think that site isn't working, but noooo I forgot to enter www...

Comment #14

Their server is setup wrong in either DNS or htaccess or both.

It used to happen all the time. Now at least most webdesigners know whats up with that...

Comment #15

Same shit.

Admins just so lazy to wirte few words in to htaccess..
