    Hey guys. I found out about an awesome website today that will tell you whether or not your site is optimized for search engine ranking.

    I had quite a few issues with my site being prime for crawling before I went in and remedied them...Now only one persistent problem stand between me and optimal search-engine friendliness. Apparently Two urls lead to the same place, which will dilute my "search juice" or something. I tried to make a redirect but to no avail.

    I made sure that when people type my site without the 3 w's they're brought to the version with the w's via a 301redirect

    Yet this doesn't fix the issue according to aboutus.

    I don't know very much about .html and I've tried everything I can think of for having only one home page destination...I've renamed my index.html file to default.html too.

    So has anyone encountered this issue before? how did you solve it? Thanks in advance :).

    Yer so awesome apart from it didn't tell you how to fix it,
    Now let me take a guess you have to part with some dollars for that part
    Tell you what I as I?m in a good mood today it?s on the house
    You fixed the
    Code:
    http
    and the
    Code:
    http://www
    address but the site says you still have a problem?
    That because you have to fix the /index.html for the http and the www address and so on get the idea

    Thanks for all the useful resources guys, I was lucky enough to find the solution in the very first reply. Still, I appreciate the support all the same.

    It turns out that without google webmaster tools it would've been a much bigger ordeal to try and remove my other canonical url. They have a little option nestled within their control panel that simply lets you set whether or not you prefer the w's.
