Force www or non-www url versions
Force www or non-www url versions| Premium Services | HuntBee OpenCart Services
Many customers at some point request to force either the www or non-www version of their site to display in their visitor's browser. For example always have www.example.com or simply example.com display in their visitor's web browser. There is a common thought that forcing one format is better for search engine optimization.
Search engines consider http://yourstore.com and http://www.yourstore.com different websites. As a result, if your website has been linked to from other websites using a mix of the two URLs you are effectively splitting the potential benefit of valuable link popularity.
Using a 301 redirect on the “non-www” version of the URL, which is essentially a “permanent” redirect, you can effectively consolidate all of your link popularity to a single URL. This consolidation will serve to increase your website’s chances of obtaining and maintaining top rankings.
Which is better? www or non-www ?
Both www and non-www URL formats are equal. Neither is better than the other. So, you can use either of the format, it’s totally your personal choice. But it is highly recommended that you use only one format. Either stick to www or consistently use non-www format. Google Webmaster tools allow you to set your preferred domain (http://www.example.com or http://example.com). And therefore Google states that it does not care which one you use.
