  • In short, you can either ...

    (a) Set a 301 permanent redirect from your non-www to www domain (so that even your users are redirected);

    OR

    (b) Use the following code in the <head> section of your homepage only:

    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.pianolessonscourse.com/">

    Hope it helps :P

  • hi AlPro

    I know Google has a feature like that in Google Webmaster Tools but I didn't see this option in Live Webmaster.

  • We currently do not have that feature (although I believe our devs are working on a solution). I suggest canonicalizing your site. Not only will we be able to understand which version you want to use, but it will help with rank and eliminate potential duplicate content issues. If you do not know how to canonicalize your site, I suggest reading Jeremiah's recent blog posts over at http://blogs.msdn.com/webmaster

  • I canonicalized the site by putting the code:

    <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.pianolessonscourse.com/"> in the <head> section of the homepage. The home page has already been crawled by Live Search with the code but the home page is still being displayed without “www”

  • Go for the meta tag in your html webpage and edit the content there which will be describing your sites content,
    <meta content="your site description which you want to be rendered by search engine">

    You can also SEO(search engine optimization) of your website to hit its search
