#2 Set Preferred Version (WWW or non WWW)
Choose your favorite version. There are two versions available for showing your site, including www Or excluding www e.g.: (http://www.thementalclub.com or http://thementalclub.com).
Confusion? Which is the best? WWW or non WWW. If your website has too long URL, then I’ll recommend you for using non WWW format. If your website has short URL, then the WWW version instead of non WWW. The non WWW URL is best for a daily updated blog.
