At some point you have to choose what you’re address should look like. Take a look at your browser’s address field. This blog’s URI is bloggersjourney.com. No www. No matter what part of this blog you visit or how you enter the address into your browser.
Spiders and bots are really simple minded. Yes, even the Googlebot. www.bloggersjourney.com and bloggersjourney.com are two different sites for them. So, to make sure your pagerank doesn’t get devided between the two domains, and you don’t risk to be punished for duplicate content, you should install the “enforce www. preference” plugin.
Unzip the archive, open your ftp client to copy the enforce-www- preference.php to your blog’s plugin directory. Activate it in your blog’s plugin management and you’re done.
From now on, no matter what address people enter to visit your site, it gets redirected to the address you entered in your general options.
