I'm in the process of setting up my website. I'm using the following for my infrastructure:
Yoast SEO for Wordpress
W3 Total Cache
Everything I'm hearing from HostGator, MaxCDN and CloudFlare is that I should be using the non-www version of my site for everything. That I should also be displaying my URL to users as the non-www version of the site.
They said this is because domain.com is the actual domain and the www version is the subdomain. Not only will keeping everything non-www help all these systems work smoothly together, but it helps for SEO as well. This is because you want all the link juice going to the actual non-www version of the site and not to the subdomain www.
Reason for this post?? I need some reassurance that I've got my head wrapped around all this correctly so I can get the best rankings in Google. Any opinions? and I'm glad to be a new member of this site!!!!
