We added code to the htaccess to address the canonical Google issue of non-www vs www for the site. The code redirects any example.com to www.example.com on our site.
The code works, and when I run the headers tool to see what the status back from the server is, the report returns with status of 300, when I would expect 200.
I found one definition online that says:
"300 Multiple Choices
The requested resource corresponds to any one of a set of representations, each with its own specific location, and agent- driven negotiation information (section 12) is being provided so that the user (or user agent) can select a preferred representation and redirect its request to that location."
I cannot figure out what they are saying, but I am wondering why it did not return a status of 200 and if Google will have issues with ranking. I know they are particular about not seeing 404 for example, and 302s in the past have been a problem, but what is this 300?
