  1. Hello, Are domains found by using this http://domain.com and http://www.domain.com. Will I be aloud to use mod_rewrite? And will this work in my .htaccess file to redirect http://www.domain.com to http://domain.com? Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^domain\.com RewriteRule (.*) http://domain.com/$1 [R=permanent,L] I'm having a problem with three of my sites. I was doing good in Google until my listings switched from http://**** to *****. Most of the incoming links are pointing to http://**** without www. so my I have went from top five for my keywords to numbers like eighty eight. I From what I've read I guess this happened because other sites linked to mine the two different ways. I didn't know it mattered both urls go to my site. I read about several people that added a 301 redirect like this Options +FollowSymLinks RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}!^domain\.com RewriteRule (.*) http://domain.com/$1 [R=permanent,L] to their .htaccess file and Google merged the two urls and they keep their page rank and incoming links. I tried to add many versions that I have found and they won't work. I works when I redirect permenant to another page or domain using something like this redirect permanent / http://www.anydomain.com/ but I can't use mod_rewrite. My hosting company said that mod_rewrite is enabled but that they tried several versions of mod_rewrite their self and they couldn't get it to work either they said it must not be compatible with their server. They said that they couldn't make a 301 redirect for me because it may affect other people's accounts. I'm afraid that Google's going to penalize me for having duplicate content since they consider with www. and without two different urls. Thank you, Karen
