#11906 closed bug (fixed)

Use a 301 redirect on main website

Description

We are not using a 301 redirect between http://haiku-os.org and http://www.haiku-os.org (or vice versa).

This is important because search engines consider URLs with and without "www" as two different websites, therefore giving the main Haiku website a much lower search ranking than it would otherwise have.

I vote for redirecting "haiku-os.org" to "www.haiku-os.org" as well. Anyone who thinks otherwise?

That's generally what I do on all the sites I administer, so no argument from me.
