    Hey BHW,

    I was looking at the bl profiles of some sites, and found sth weird.

    When I look at "www.example.com" it shows it has no backlinks, but when I look at "example.com" ( without www. ) it shows 3k backlinks.

    Who should I trust? And why is it too different between them?

    Your site is indexed without www you can change your preferred domain in webmaster tools either include www or without www.

    Does the www affect the rankings in any way?

    Now if you wish to include www you have to verify both www and non www in your webmaster tools and choose the preferred & set the redirect correctly you should be safe.

    I actually prefer without www, as it is easier for people to remember.
