Cannocail URL in targeting

I found this out recently when ads started to be untargeted that you have to set targeting for the www.yoursite.com and the yoursite.com types!

Just an insight I hope helps!

The ad targeting feature works on URL prefixes. So if you specify [foo.com...] it'll match all URLs that start with that prefix, e.g., [foo.com...] .

Notice [foo.com...] does not start with [foo.com,...] so it doesn't match. neither does [baz.foo.com...] for any baz!= www.

You might want to set up a redirect handler that will redirect traffic from foo.com to www.foo.com to make management easier.

So I'd want to direct it from sitename.com to www.sitename.com for example?

Any easy way to do this without it being messy?
