In your opinion if you are backlinking - is it better to include your www or not?
For a long domain name, I'd use non-www URL, but for a short name (less than 6 character) I'd rather use www.
I always use www with my websites. I see its cooler hehe
I prefer not to us the www in the backlinking ,because I like simple .
Do you mean is it better to use the URL or keyword rich anchor text?
Or do you mean domain.com or www .domain.com
I've had some problems with the sitemap
It's ok now
I use www in front of my domains. Seems cleaner.
From the point of view of your visitors, it won't matter much. It won't change the fact that people will type in www or not. However, some people do look in the address bar and they might have a better chance of remembering your site if you don't include www at the beginning.
erm, you should also consider that google used to (and probably still does) see www. and non-www as separate domains with separate ranking. so whichever way you choose to go, be consistent and always rewrite your url via internal links
I agree about redirecting to your primary choice, it does annoy me that quite a lot of sites require you to type www_example_com and when you just use example_com you end up seeing an error page or even someone else's website in some cases of shared hosting!
pick one, stick to that one (most people who link to you will use www. so I would recommend you go with that one. Then rewrite your urls via HTACCESS or Windows rewrite.
Choose one and redirect the other to it. I prefer www to non www
I always prefer www (not without www) for my all sites. I know few people using site without www always. Don't know why
Both ways have advantage and disadvantage, but personally I prefer with w w w.
I use both when i put my link somewhere but dont put a www in ads ..
www using always when site give WEB service, not just http, ftp and other service.
Looking for post more 9 mesages for making signature :shifty:
Hello guys :thumbsup:
Personal preference is www but choose one, be consistent and redirect the other.
That way it doesnt matter as you get both sets of people (with and without www) and the linking is all counted for one domain so you get the best benefit.
I use www. in front of all of my domain names as i also find it a cleaner way.
I like to keep things consitant and that is what i do.
Consistency is the order of the day, url with or without www makes not difference.
I always use "www" in the URLs. No special reason, just prefer it that way.
And the non-"www" visits to the URLs are properly 301 redirected to the corresponding "www" format.
Separate names with a comma.
