    Hey guys, so I was just wondering for a site with a domain like this:
    http://www.example.com/

    Should I build links to
    http://example.com/
    or
    http://www.example.com/

    or both? Any ideas what's more efficient?

    In some browsers it shows up with www in others without it seems.

    Yeah makes sense. I've build to the non-www version though and seen rank improvements. I guess no matter which I use it will help.

    Build links to both, but configure your .htaccess file so one version is redirected to another. for example 'non www' to 'www'. this way all link juice (and visitors) will be redirected to your 'www' subdomain.

    Great advice, this is a exactly on the dot. You can set it via htaccess and also if you have GMT you can set up the preferred domain in there as well, although not necessary! :)
