    Well, if I enter www . mysite . com, it redirects me to mysite.com (without www. ). If I look on opensiteexplorer, www . mysite . com has PA 27, mysite .com has PA 1 ... What the hell should I do?

    Also I ordered some PBN links 1 month ago and the guy made them for www. (altough my site is non-www).

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Well if you intend to use the site for longer period, just simple forget it, I am sure you will get the authority for non-www website.
    OR
    2. You can redirect non-www and start using www domain.

    Do as Sagar said. I usually do that for all my domains anyways, besides user experience it'll be good for SEO.

    links are important, if links are to www. then redirect 301 to www.

    Ok, I'm confused a bit now. Sagar said I should 301 redirect from www to non www.

    supportnhelp said redirect from non www to www.

    If you're using Apache, put this in your .htaccess file.

    Code:
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain\.com$ [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.domain.com/$1 [L,R=301]
    Then, use canonical URLs in your <head> tags to be sure the search engines aren't indexing two different versions of each page.

    Code:
    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.domain.com/url-of-page" />

    Ok, I have another question.

    [​IMG]

    If I'll just modify directly from wordpress from http://example.com to http://www.example.com that would be alright? Asking this because the www. version already got good PA ... wouldn't this be better?

    I just want to make sure this is ok or not, my site is indexed in google as non-www, any ideas please?

    You should put as default URL the www and then use this also for the links.

    As you already have the redirect from non www to www, you don't have to be worry.

    Don't switch to the www version just because it has page authority. Why? Because your site will rank in the same position whether the www version has page authority or the non-www version.
