    Question another important google question


    when i enter my domain url www.mydomain.com
    i can see in the results my domain with title and description
    but when i enter mydomain.com without www it just shows
    my url without any title or desc at all, just mydomain.com/

    Why does it not show the title and desc when i only enter mydomain.com
    in google search?

    You really want to create a 301 redirect for the non www version of the domain as Google will see mydomain.com and www.mydomain.com as two different sites. As such if you don't use a 301 redirect Google will think you have two sites with duplicate content.

    How should that redirect appear in the .htaccess file?

    Could it be that google as thinks that I have duplicates of all
    my html files and folders?
