    I've heard many people say not to include the WWW prefix for an autoblog while others recommend the WWW. What are the pros and cons of this technique. Seems to me that Google could easily identify autoblogs if everyone is not using the www prefix. Thoughts?

    Makes 0 difference at all in regards to SERPS. - Fact. Anyone who says anything else is making a guess. Mat Cutts made a post about this on his site a while back

    No difference at all. Just remember to do a 301 from one version to the other so google indexes just one

    Absolutely no difference at all. In fact, I prefer non-www because it's cleaner and easier for branding. It makes your URL shorter, easier to remember and cleaner. Perfect or business cards or on sites like Twitter where every character counts.

    Dose't really matter www is just to signify or refer to the world wide web and plays no role in autoblogging.
