    Hey! I seem to have a problem of google indexing both a www version of my and a non www version. However, Google indexes them by splitting the site. My www versions are indexed but only caching the text. While my non www version only get the graphics. For example
    Non WWW. [URL="http://webcache.googleu...com&cd=5&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a
    With WWW. http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:6NlqWe9X0UAJ:www.numeroten.com/Tutorials/Entries/2010/8/6_iWeb_-_How_to_Get_Google_Analytics_on_Your_iWeb_Site.xml+www.numeroten.com&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a

    these are the same pages except the last one has www. Google is indexing my page twice and it seems to be splitting the text and graphics. Can i fix this by taking one out? how do i completely tka eout one or the other? For now i prefer the non www version because msot of my site is indexed that way, but every www that is indexed is split.

    You really don't need to delete them. They will drop out of Google automatically over a short period of time.

    learn about .htaccess and having the server auto-correct:

    yoursite.com

    as

    www.yoursite.com
