1st thing to do for your site
Many customers have asked us how to setup our websites so the search engines will cache our pages correctly.
Well the first thing you should do for your website is to setup a .htaccess file in your root folder with the following coding:

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

You will need to change the domain listed above to your own.
What this coding will do is change the url to include the www at all times. The last thing you want to do is have the search engines cache both your domain.com and www.domain.com as this will cause the search engines to think their are duplicate occurrences of the WebPages and then they may ban you.
