How to Get Better Visibility on Google | Google’s Matt Cutt

Anyone who has been involved in SEO knows who Matt Cuttsis. He is possibly the most public face of Google’s search team. He specializes in web spam, but is always dropping suggestion about what is going on behind the scenes, as well as honestly telling whoever will listen how they can rank better in Google.

In this video, Matt Cutts is interviewed by USA Today’s Jefferson Graham. Whenever Matt Cutts speaks, it is good to listen. This can be especially true in interview type situations where he is answering questions and speaking ‘off the cuff’ rather than in a prepared statement.

In these situations, there are often times a number of golden nuggets that can be taken from the conversation and put into good practice. This is well worth a watch, as is everything Matt Cutts has to say!

How to solve canonical issue (www and non-www)

One of the most common problems do All Design & Developers, I see in websites is the same content being available at both the WWW and non-WWW versions of a domain. I’ve come upon this in nearly every website I’ve done an SEO audit for, and I see it every day when browsing the web. regardless of it being so prevalent, it is indeed a problem.

You can solve this issue By Redirect Using .htaccess

 Redirect Using .htaccess

If your site is hosted on Apache, you can redirect from the WWW to the non-WWW, or vice versa, with a few lines in your .htaccess file.

Redirect WWW to non-WWW:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(yourdomain\.com)?$

RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Redirect non-WWW to WWW:

RewriteEngine On

RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^(www\.yourdomain\.com)?$

RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]

Redirect Using cPanel: 

Another way is C-panel of website, you can go on website control panel and set www and non www setting.
