Hello everyone, I have a client that have used a web design company and they redesign the site and changes her site from www to www1  and her site lost most traffic.

 

The company told her that Google loves www1!!!!!

 

I am not familiar with this. Do they have to redirect 301 to www1?

 

Any idea?

I would implement the 301-redirect.

Google has as much love for "ww1" as it does for "www". I think Chris is implying that any clueless moron should know that.

Clueless morons are more dangerous than ordinary morons.

 

I would change to another designer that knows what they are doing to resolve the situation. Although it is difficult to be 100% certain of the best solution, I would probably favour everting back to www. and implimenting a 301 from the www1 URLs.
