|www or naked or both||Jon Morgan||5/3/12 5:29 AM|
I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: yes
My site's URL (web address) is: fastinsuranceservice.com
Have a question regarding submitting/listing a site with google via site map. When I do a search for my site - site:fastinsuranceservice.com, the results are displaying both the naked domain and the www in front of the domain. For best practices should i be getting only 1 of the 2 results?? I'm trying to figure out if the so called seo expert programmer I'm using, knows whats hes doing??
I'm still learning here, so thanks for any and all advice here.

Either www or non-www is fine for Google. While we recommend picking one and redirecting the other (eg http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=139066 ) and see that as a "best-practice," it's not a requirement & many websites don't redirect and do fine in search.
