It finally got indexed but then the results were really weird. I then realized that some one had put www.myblogname.blogspot.com.
Someone else submitted my site that way, because I had this problem with a free site I had tried to make and had gotten killed by Google.
So . . if you blog you know how every post has their own page and you rely on the search engines to get you visitors.
Now I'm really messed up because someone else submitted my site with a www.
And I checked my links on my blogger template: no www. link.
I checked google's results for the term "http://www.myblogname.blogspot.com" and the only result was my [myblogname.blogspot.com....]
So what do I do. I'm screwed because I rely on Google. . . I didn't even copy anything. . . I had this problem before and avoided it . . . or so I thought.
I'm 99.99% sure someone else submitted my site like that.
What do I do? I am freaking out here. Do I write Google? What do I say?
Help This Guy Out. ..lol
Bingo. You say this is the second time this has happened to you. This is fixable (albeit it takes a bit) with a redirect, as mentioned, but you can't do that on a "free site". Best thing you can learn from this, aside from seeing if Google can work this out itself as mentioned, is that if a site's ranks in google have any value to you whatsoever, then treat them as if they do and give the site a real domain and a real hosting plan.
MOST people care about this
Not really - only SEOs care about this. Ordinary "true" bloggers (and that is what this product is aimed at) only care that their cat photos show up whether they type the www in or not. As the provider doesn't know (or care) which URL version the end user wants, they let both be available.
