    Hi, when you go to my site, it corrects the domain to http://www.domainname.com. But if you go on google and search it, the result for my homepage says domainname.com . What do I link to to get the juice?

    If you search on google then click the title, what is the final url?
    http://www.domain.com or http://domain.com?
    Use that final url for links.

    I assume that you have this htaccess fix to redirect non-www to www.

    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^.*$ http://www.domain.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
    
    The best is to use http://www.domain.com
    But, as long as you have this fix and google algorithm doesn't change,
    http://domain.com would still passes the link juice.

    i think they are both the same, you can change what google displays with the webmaster tools btw (www or not). i always backlink with just http://

    What's the difference? Anyways, if this really matters, I prefer you use www. only... Why? Because 80% of internet users are using www. rather than typing theurl.com or http://www.THEURLHEREBLAHBLAH.com or http://urlherelikeblahblah.com

    Is this necessary even if you use google webmaster tool to set your preffered version?

    If so, any more information on implementing it?. do you just change the domain part of the code to you site name, then save it as a
    htaccess file and upload it, where do you upload it to?

    Cheers
