Let's say I place a 301 redirect on domain.com to www.domain.com. This should transfer PR but will I lose the DMOZ benefit ("signs of quality" etc)?
If you want to make that URL NOT work (a 301 redirect to the preferred URL is the best way), then the ODP will update its listing next time our automated linkrot checker runs.
It just ran, and we're cleaning up the mess now. I'd expect the next run in about 3-4 months (plus or minus 3-4 months, of course).
The problem with having DMOZ change the url is that it can take forever and I will not know for sure if the editor won't kill my listing. So I don't think I want to risk that. Never change a running system....
There is another alternative: I could use domain.com as standard in communication to others and put a 301 on www.domain.com to domain.com.
Does that make more sense? Are there any downsides to not going by the common standard with www?
How can I get them to be the same
www.domain.com diffrent than http*//mydomain.com
I actually don't know if a 301 redirect to the www version will work. It's an idea I haven't seen suggested in all these posts on getting the www to be the default.
