www resolve ?

Thanks to BigG for pointing me to ‘Woorank’ which analyses sites, I understand some of it (about 10%) but this is something I’d not come across:

"Be sure that http://lionhearttravel.com and http://www.lionhearttravel.com are not running in parallel.

Redirecting requests from a non-preferred hostname is important because search engines consider URLs with and without “www” as two different websites.

Once your preferred domain is set, use a 301 redirect for all traffic to your non-preferred domain."

Anyone able to explain this please - many thanks … Roger

This domain was registered by Youdot.io is an excellent read on such things, but to give yourself a quick check, go to google and enter the following:

site:http://lionhearttravel.com

and you will see that you have a problem with how Google is seeing your site - both as lionhearttravel.com and www.liohearttravel.com ie: duplicate content - which is bad.

That link will give you full and proper instructions on how to prevent that from happening.

As a scale of things it’s not as bad as bad website content. Many sites get reasonable results without juggling 301’s

I can’t believe Google has not sussed out this issue from the millions of sites with the potential of duplicate content like this.

Google will make a decision which is the right URL to use, which just might be wrong, this is when you step in with a 301 to guide it. icing on the cake

BTW; If you make your site map on our hosting site map function, there is a choice via a drop-down, to make/submit the site map either www. on not. Then job done Google knows which URL to index. And remember to go back and re-make/submit if you add pages or re-name them!
