Most of the time we can detect if example.com and www.example.com are the same. Message #7 by g1smd said pretty much exactly what I would say.

BUT: if people are seeing extreme problems, please drop me a report (either email to webmaster [at] google.com or via a spam report) with the keyword urlcanonicalization as one word. I'm happy to pass those reports on the the crawl group to make sure that they group them together, and check out if our canonicalization has developed any problems..

Anyone have any information on this:

You have non-www and www versions of your pages, for example:

http://goldensurplus.com/ -> http://www.goldensurplus.com/

Google may see them as duplicate content. Google should understand that some sites don't use a 301 redirect from non-www pages to www-pages, but to be on the safe side, you could use an HTTP 301 permanent redirect from non-www pages to www pages.

How do i get these pages to just work correctly on th eredirect..its not duplicate content
