Domain appears in SERPs without www RRS feed

  • Question

  • Could someone explain why my website appears in the SERPs without "www" :

    For example, I search for keyworf "livre photo" on Live Search, my website is in position 6 :

    Livre Photo

    Livre Photo : Le spécialiste de la création de livre photo imprimé et relié comme un livre à partir de vos photos numériques. Mariage, anniversaire, naissance, vacances ...

    How come I do not have the www.livre-photo.com ?

    Does it have an impact on ranking ?

    I have modifyed htaccess to rewrite http://livre-photo.com into http://www.livre-photo.com so I would asume any robot should only see the "www" alias ?

  • Hi Livre,

    Because you do have your site canonicalized correctly, this will not affect your ranking. This will most likely fix itself over time, so I wouldn't be too worried about it. If this is still an issue in a couple of months, let me know and I will look into it.

    I did notice that our engine is getting confused between livre and libre which I will take up with our relevance team.
