    I think you should have the same results for both if the redirection from

    yourdomain.com to -www.yourdomain.com

    is all right.

    I agree, but imo, not having a 301 redirection isn't the best solution.

    You need to decide which one you prefer, and then re-direct the other one to it. Otherwise you run the risk of Google's canonical problems, and possibly duplicate content trouble.

    Unless there's a pproper 301 redirect in place the SEs will see the two as distinct websites, not as one.

    Because Google sees your www, and non-www URLs as being separate websites – ie, two different websites with the same content.

    You need to put redirects into your .htaccess file in order to redirect all traffic from one of the versions to the other. Doesn't matter which one.

    Alternatively, if you're using Google Sitemaps you can instruct Google as to which domain name you prefer via the Sitemaps control panel.

    The other SE's don't seem to have this problem, so if you're not up to the task of making redirects you might be best using Google Sitemaps.

    If you were using the www extension then check with it or if you were not then just avoid it.

    Make sure that when you log in to your Google Sitemap account you tell them which domain you prefer, www. or without www.
