Enforce Browser To Add WWW Before Your Website

Why to have WWW before your Domain Name

Its very important in the eyes of Search Engine Optimization to render your website with a www in the beginning. If your site is being rendered with a www and also without a www then there is a big problem.

To overcome this issue lets find out a solution.

Adding WWW before Your Domain Name through .htaccess File

lets consider your website's name is "www.tapankumar.in" , So when you type www.tapankumar.in in the browser then it will open the site. Again if you type tapankumar.in in the browser then also it will open the site.

Now the problem is that when a search engine like Google try to crawl your site it will find TWO - 200 response against "www.tapankumar.in" and "tapankumar.in" ,  Hence the search engine consider this as a duplicate url.
You need to resolve this issue in order to get better SEO results, and here is a way to do this using your .htaccess file.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
     RewriteEngine On
     RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.tapankumar\.in$ [NC]
     RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.tapankumar.in/$1 [R=301,L]
Now put the above code into your .htaccess file, and this will prepend a "www" before your website address automatically. 

Happy Coding...
