    No, it won't change your rankings. Google will consider www. and not www. are the same website (you can view it with "info:" command on each of your two versions)

    no it won't. but if you are using a preferred method option, then redirect the other url that you are using to the one that you have prioritized.

    It can cause a dance for a couple of days, but it will not cause any changes on a large scale.

    Hi,

    It is safe, but why would you change it anyway?

    I always thought that a domain with www at the beginning, reminds me something 'looking better' that non-www version.
    It's only cosmetics, anyway :)

    Of course it is safe . And you should stop worrying about this redirect.

    It would be interesting to have some statistics about click rate between a "www." and a "not www.". I think a www. is more clicked.
