2 diffrent PRs

Discussion in 'All Other Search Engines' started by asgsoft, Apr 10, 2007.

    Why does my site have two diffrent pageranks.

    One for when I have www. infront of the domain and one without it?

    for example,

    http://www.thewebmasterstool.com/ has a PR4

    http://thewebmasterstool.com/ has a PR2


    What is the cause? and is there anyway I can fix it?

    Thanks

    You need to do a 301 redirect from the non-www version to the www version.

    asgsoft,

    Type the following into your .htaccess file

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^thewebmasterstool.com
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.thewebmasterstool.com [R=301,L]

    Thank you very much

    it works

    would it combine both PRs and give a larger one?

    No it wont be a PR6. :)
    Most likely it will remain a PR4.

    Create one and upload it to the server. Create a plain text file called htaccess.txt. Upload it to the root directory of your site. Then rename it .htaccess.

    its interesting as well, my new blog www has PR 0 and non www has PR 1,
    I think its the matter of consistency which one you want to use for default.

    I prefer non www one as I am to lazy to type in www.

    you must use 301 redirect to avoid from that . if you do this , i think google will fix your page rank to 4
