    Code:

    vs. when I type in just the domain - mysite.com

    Because google indexes both.

    Some think that this will lead to a duplicate content penalty so it is recommended to use a Rewrite in your .htaccess file to forward all yoursite.com to www.yoursite.com or vice versa.

    Couldn't be more of a no-brainer, and if your host doesn't allow mod_rewrite, change hosts. Easy peasy, copy and paste

    Remember that there are two types of redirects:

    Permanent redirection: 301 Redirect
    Temporary redirection: 302 Redirect:
    Redirect non-www to www.
    What you want for redirecting your homepage is a permanent redirect, not temporary. And as long as your server supports mod_rewrite, it's a simple matter to copy and paste a couple of lines of simple code into the .htaccess file, which goes like this:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} .
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.example\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule (.*) http://www.example.com/$1 [R=301,L]

    Make sure to change the URL to your own domain name. Yes, I have redirected pages to www.example.com - it's easily fixed in a few seconds.

    That will redirect any requests for example.com to www.example.com
