When typing in a web site, do you typically include the www's these days? In other words, if I told you to go look at something on Yahoo, would you type in "www.yahoo.com" or "yahoo.com"?

I type in yahoo in the address bar, and then hit cntrl+enter. It automatically appends a WWW to the front and a .com to the end.

This.

Although some websites dont work when you include www.

Also, some dont work unless you include www.

Leave out the www.

as an advertiser, we always talk our clients into just saying the name.com. EVeryone knows that the wwws are implied.

That's what I do. Then you'll get yahoo.com, yahoomail.com, yahoosports.com, etc...

I find that I can find things faster on our University web page by googling them than by using the directory of the university web site.

It is mostly unnecessary but does depend on web-site adminstrators setting the site access to accept traffic with or without.

Not only should you NOT use www. but you should 301 redirect all pages so that when someone types in www. that is redirects to the nonwww page.

Not using WWW is incredibly poor form.

I mean, what if I wanted to go to mail.yahoo.com? Or ftp.yahoo.com?

Yup, I avoid wasted keystrokes whenever possible. Of course I don't need any comments from the peanut gallery asking about my posts on here.

For some reason, I always just go to websites using google. I very rarely go to a website using the address bar. Like if this site wasn't bookmarked,I would type in "chiefsplanet" in google eveytime I wanted to come here instead of typing chiefsplanet.com in the address bar.

This poll is flawed. :shake:

Ari Chi3fs
09-24-2009, 01:01 AM
Why?

some link juice gets attached to http://www.blah.com and some gets attached to http://blah.com

in eyes of webbot / spider... they appear to be different. So, you always want to do a permanent 301 redirect.

Google it.

I would first press "ctrl" + "L" to get into the address bar (this only works in firefox, in IE it brings up a little "open" box) type yahoo and the press "ctrl" + "enter" and that adds in the www. and the .com; I'm all about the keyboard shortcuts

Either will work, but any webmaster worth their salt should redirect all traffic to one or the other if you want the best results in Google and other search engines.

There are servers on the internet that aren't running HTTP.

But that's ok, just assume all domains with no A record are webservers, because people are too lazy to type "www".
