    I purchased an expired domain with some back links when i use yahoo site explorer http://123.com it shows no back links but if i input http://www.123.com it will show the links do i need to do some sort of redirect or something to make sure i get the links to http://123.com.

    I believe the new cannonical meta-tag is useful for this.

    I also encountered this kind of problem on where my boss renews our website and removed the www on the webpage, I lost all page ranks on Google.

    Since you have backlinks in www., you should continue using with www. itself.

    Search engines treat http:// and http://www. as different and they rank for these differently.

    If you are using Wordpress site choose http://www.domain.com inside Wordpress control panel.

    You can you use SEO friendly 301 redirection using htaccess file also.

    One of my site is http:// and all other in http://www.
    Why this one site in http:// is just because I never knew what this redirection and all is and I created backlinks to http:// and not http://. So if I am changing the site from http:// to http://www. it will definitely loose it's rankings. Which I dont want to happen.

    Hope it gave you some ideas.

    My suggestion. - Use as it is http://www.123.com . Also add a redirection from http://123.com to http://www.123.com.

    Cheers. :D

    Create a file named ".htaccess".

    Then open it in notepad and paste below code.

    Code:
    # For security reasons, Option followsymlinks cannot be overridden.
    #Options +FollowSymlinks
    Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
    RewriteEngine on
    rewritecond %{http_host} ^yourwebsite.com [nc]
    rewriterule ^(.*)$ http://www.yourwebsite.com/$1 [r=301,nc]
    RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^.*/index.html
    RewriteRule ^(.*)index.html$ http://www.yourwebsite.com/$1 [R=301,L]
    In place of yourwebsite.com, use your website domain.

    Then upload this file to your root directory.
