WWW or non-WWW.jpg


There seems to be a lot of confusion with using WWW or not using WWW with your website URL. Does it matter one way or another? The answer is no it doesn’t matter if you add the WWW before your website URL or you decide to eliminate the WWW before your website URL. Today this is a personal preference and it is up to you to choose the way you present your site’s URL to search engines. However, you do this, you must stick with it and always use the same URL no matter what. If you’ve already submitted your site’s URL to a search engine, it is necessary that you continue to use the same URL in order to benefit from the small things and not have your site banned for double content.

Changing Your URL:

If you have submitted your website to a search engine using www.site.com and now have decided that you want to just use site.com, the search engine will now consider this two different websites and will ban your site for double pages, content, and also keywords.

Long ago when the practice of link purchasing was widespread there were a lot of questions concerning adding www to the beginning of the URL address a site used. In the early days, the confusion leads to a lot of link failure and caused webmasters a lot of trouble on the sites they built. Webmasters needed to monitor the site to make sure that the two different options weren’t considered the main mirror by the search engines.

What Are The Differences?

If a website uses www in their hostname it will adjust the DNS which will restrict the cookies while visiting or utilizing other domains. This is a technical privilege given to sites that add the www before their URL hostname.

If your website doesn’t use www before the hostname, you are not granted the same privileges as a site that uses www before their hostname. When you choose your URL hostname it is recommended that you speak the name out loud and decide if you like www.site.com better than you like site.com. Just keep in mind that a harmonic name is easier for a person to recall and remember when they are searching for your site online.

Today it is more important for you to concentrate on the SEO of your site and not so much on having www in front of your URL hostname or not. The www doesn’t have any significant benefits if it is added to your URL hostname or not. The only thing you need to worry about when setting up your URL hostname is to make sure that you clearly clarify the website URL when it is registered and you keep the same website URL when registering with the different search engines.

Does Google Care?

If you are wondering if Google cares about you adding a www before your hostname or not, the answer is no. Google doesn’t care one way or another. All Google cares about is that you continue to use the same hostname all the time and not change it. If you’ve registered your website using www before your hostname, this is what Google wants to see when you register your site. They don’t want you to register your site without the www in front of your hostname.

So now you see there is no benefit in adding the www before your URL hostname. This is your personal choice one way or another and it doesn’t matter how you decide. The only thing that matter is that whatever you decide, you stick with your decision for the life of your site.

What do you prefer a www before your hostname or just your hostname without a www?

I don't think people bother much about the prefix before the domain name and I don't remember typing that when searching for a site ,I think one should be more concern with the domain extension than the former. I don't think www or not would do much to one site ranking fast or high on search engine.

Normally it do not matters if we type WWW or leave it; however today I faced a problem while searching a site which was online and available, still the site was not loading when I tried to open in browser. I even changed the browser, but neither it was loading in Chrome, nor Firefox; and webmaster was saying Site refused to load.

First I was not sure what was happening because site was actually available, so after a thought, I just put "www." before the domain name in the browser, and then it loaded, it clearly loaded even when I hadn't deleted any history/cookies catche etc.

So www is sometimes helpful when a site refuse to load.

I don't think it will help your site to rank faster since Google would have asked for your preference initially whether you prefer www or non www. But if your website loads on both www and non www, I will suggest to do a permanent redirection to your preferred choice either www or non www. These days the search engines are quite smart enough to pick 1 for you but it may not be the version you like.

I use www sometimes non-www but every time when there's something wrong with the site or pages, I write www. To be honest for me, the www can give you better web designs whenever you search a site. I barely use non-www for some sites so that I could avoid time-consuming.

I don't think these days we need to write www. or even https or anything like that as most of the web browsers are coming with inbuilt features in which they will search the word we typed without.com and will open the website if typed with.com

Some sites aren't properly redirected. That means that failure for one to type either www or etc might block the site from being accessed. At least I know some site which requires so. Personally, the www. version is much better than the naked domain or one with no www. www means a real site which is not the case with the non-www. I prefer the www version.

Thanks for clarifying this. I was not aware that for SEO perspective it does not matter whether you are using naked domain (non www) or non-naked domain (with www). I see some domains using www and https at the same time, can anyone explain this?

I have also read elsewhere that it does not matter much whether you use www or non-www, however, what matters is you are consistent in using the URL prefix. However, I do not know what difference it makes when we are using http. I know https refers to the secured state of the domain, however, is there a difference between www and http?

The only difference between the www and non-www site URLs is the technical URL. When your website contains "www.", it is the hostname that is tuned to DNS and restricts cookies when using other domains. At the same time, if your website does not have "www." then it does not have such technical privileges.

Google will crawl either www or non-www site, but the difference is the site with www is more professional to look than non-www. People will trust more to the url with www.

www. is just a prefix for us to know that we're accessing a webpage, before during the good old days, we have different protocol like finger, telnet, gopher and mail, but for seo when you want to know if a specific website is indexed in google all you have to do is type index:beermoneyforum.com and you'll see it and when you type index:www.beermoneyforum.com migh yield a totally different number of results, but google indexes the main domain name so it's all based there because it's understandably www. as protocol or it's a website, even in the index command it will count the subdomains as well but it all depends on the based domain name not the protocol for seo so i go for the domain itself without the www.

When you use WWW in your site URL. It is flexible with DNS, the ability to restrict cookies when trying many subdomains. Without www URL is naked domains. It does not have a technical advantage.

depends on what kind of people you're targeting , if you're targeting old people , then WWW is better , because those old people are really used to add WWW before typing any websites name , if not , then the website looks fine without WWW as well

I think a WWW domain is way better than a non-WWW as that allows your website to be ranked higher on the google search rankings and it is also the more common and more popular domain
