Url Forwarding Seo

As I understand it, Google can't tell (or refuses to notice) that those two URLs point to the same page. The same would be true for http://www.domain.com/index.html -- it's a different address, so Google treats it as a different document.
The thing to do is pick one and stick with it. Try to get anyone who links to your page to use the same format for its URL. And if you're doing forwarding, you can also forward any requests for http://domain.com to http://www.domain.com, or vice-versa.

I also would suggest that the fail-safe way to go is always to standardize on http://www.mydomain.com when quoting your URL. Any choice may mean you lose a fraction of your referals with the search engines. However I believe that using this URL you minimize the leakage.

I would direct them all to http://www.domain.com
Hope that helps!
