I have read plenty of information on this subject, but for some reason still can't put the pieces together, hence this thread. So I get that... http://www.mywebsite.com/ http://www.mywebsite.com http://mywebsite.com http://mywebsite.com/ ...those are all different and if you don't set up redirecting correctly, there are technically 4 different versions of one's website on the internet... correct? Using a tool i found in Google, I found that apparently my company's website is 6-fold... there aren't any re-directs anywhere, AND there's actually 2 additional duplicates! http://www.mywebsite.com// and http://mywebsite.com// I've read tutorials on how to change the .htaccess file in order to handle redirecting, so i think i can fix it... ...but how did this happen in the first place? How are there 6 different versions of my website online when i only have 1 index.html file?
