Changing the adresses with www/non www urls

How long could it take to transfer the pr?

First of all, let me say that we just made a redirection in the .htaccess so that our visitors all go to the same pages adress (with the www).

We have seen a huge drop in the pagerank and we understand that google as to accept and integrate the changes.

Will all the pr be conserved and transfered to the new links?

How long could it take to see the PR changes? 1 or 2 pr updates or even more?

Also does the PR will be transferred from subdomains links (domain.site.com to regular www/dir/ form?

Thanks

No one here wishes to share it's experience on redirecting the PR and the timeframe I should expect?

Thanks

Personally, I avoid a change like the one you propose whenever possible, to avoid the inevitable drop in rankings, so I have no recent experience.

Your PR will all be consolidated into one version of your domain name, eventually.

Since you have already implemented the change, it will probably be thoroughly spidered before the next Google update. I would expect part (possibly most) of the PR to be transferred with that update, and all of it to be transferred by the update that follows.

Reminder: Updates occur quarterly now, and they're typically followed by a PR update about a week later, so it could take as long as six months for everything to be fully resolved.

Also does the PR will be transferred from subdomains links (domain.site.com to regular www/dir/ form?
I'm uncertain exactly what your asking here but if your redirect also redirects your subdomains, then PR associated with those subdomains will also be transferred.

Thanks daveAtIFG

relating to the second question I asked ( about the subdomains) you guessed right, and you answered the question already, thanks again ;)

We did those changes after a huge drop in rankings anyway (trying to fix the problem and structure was a problem among others...)

So I'll sit and wait then!
