I have just implemented htaccess redirects so that everything aimed at [mysite.co.uk...] will get redirected to http//mysite.co.uk. (in otherwords, the www is dropped)

My Google analytics code is for [mysite.co.uk...]
The site is built on Joomla with the GA code pasted into the template rather than being injected by any extension/plugin

So:

Will GA only count traffic that comes through the www?
Or will everything be counted?

It will count all of it, but you'll see it split by sub-domain in some reports.
