    Hello BHW,

    I set my WP blog with no www from the admin panel, so www will be redirected to non www automatically.

    Now, I have just realized that I made a mistake by using www on my link building, it's several hundreds articles published.
    When I realized this mistake I tried to redirect it using 301 on the .htaccess file, but the blog can't be loaded (error).

    Now, considering that the blog actually redirects the www to non www when accesses from browser (real user/visitor) do I still need to use 301 redirect?

    Thanks

    No, I believe the WP redirect will pass all the link juice through to your non-WWW domain.

    Thanks mate, I also think the WP redirect is enough but still need confirmations from others.
    Thanks
