Web addresses started appearing in print, it’s been tempting to lop the “www” off to make the URL easier to remember and to use.Does it matter if you do that? Is a www address better for SEO? If a viewer uses www, will the page show up differently than if they don’t?
When you register a domain name, you register example.com, not www.example.com. That’s because the www part of the URL is actually considered a subdomain, much like blog.example.com, login.example.com, etc. The www largely is a carryover from the days of the Internet when you had to specify that you were using a World Wide Web site and not something like gopher or ftp.
