    Should I submit both www and none www website url in Google?

    Hello everyone,

    When submitting my site to Google in Webmaster Tools. Should submit both www and none www at the same time? My site is already automatic go to www when even when there is no www enter. Will Google think it duplicate contents and it is bad for SEO?

    Google takes www as a mirrow of your site by default.

    I would recommend to choose whether you want your site presented as or just Then make sure you force a redirect on the one you want people to always see in the address bar.

    It's very good that you redirect to www.
    Yes, you can submit both versions. Choose the www. as the "preferred domain".

    yes submit your website with both versions and then set your 1 preferred domain in Google Webmaster Tools that you like.
    if you set www version then also redirect non www version to www version by adding the 301 redirect code in .htaccess file

    There is detailed info given about "www and none www" in Webmaster Tools help titled "Preferred domain (www or non-www)". So, it will more help you.

    When I go to Prefered Domain setting I get this message:

    Preferred domain
    Not all options are available because of a Change of Address request related to this site.

    When I type in my url in my brower, without the www it redirect to www. Should I still add the none example to Google? Will Google see it as duplicate content and bad for SEO?

    What do you guy think?

    You don't need to submit it at Webmaster Tools. Google can find it without it.

    I think you should read OP's post properly. Redirection is already done. For OP your website is doing fine(redirect non www to WWW). no need to add both URL in Google

    Re:Should I submit both www and none www website url in Google?

    If your website's address automatically redirects from none www to www website, this means your website is free from the canonical issue which is very good for your website. In this case you should only have to submit your site once with www and not twice.

    with or w/o "www"

    You should determine whether you have a "preferred URL"... then concentrate on your preferred URL...

    Post I should submit WWW and non WWW URL ?

    We can submit WWW and non www website url but only we should fix our url with one www or nonwww url. If your site is open with both www or non www url so there can be create duplicacy. so for removing the duplicacy we fix our url with www or nonwww with the help of canonical issue code.
