I have a website which is fresh and new, it G has indexed all pages but the home page. i have noticed that without the www it is indexed but with it's nowhere.

Can anybody help?

I have never come across this problem and I have aslo checked the metatags and done checks using webmaster tools, all came back clean. The other strange thing is that I have redirected the domain without www to the www.domain.com.

How did google pick up and index the domain without the www?

Google is doing the opposite of what you want. You haven't mentioned if you have or not, so if you haven't I'd check that your non-www to www redirect works with a http header checker. Sometimes it is the really obvious stuff.

That depends on your server - Apache [webmasterworld.com] or IIS [webmasterworld.com]. For other servers, check the manual.

If you don't have admin access on your server, call tech support.

Thanks, it's now a 301 redirect. How long before it's picked up?

That's something like asking "how long before it rains again in London". Might be in a day, might be a week - but it's not going to be all that long.
