Michael Martinez: They are separate unless one is redirected to the other.They are separate unless they publish the exact same content as the other - and canonicalization is used to fold their PageRank-like value into one address.If they are not canonically combined (for whatever reason), then they can share PageRank-like value by linking to each other.Don`t overthink this.If you have 2 URLs on a site (Alpha and Beta), and you can load them separate into browsers without either redirecting to the other, then the site is publishing 2 separate and distinct documents regardless of whether they use the same protocol or if the only difference between their spellings is that 1 is terminated with a slash.Whether the search engines treat them as 1 document or 2 depends on the rules they apply to interpreting the 2 documents.If they are literally identical and the site doesn`t redirect one protocol to the other, assume the search engines will attempt to collapse them into a canonical state - but you`re not guaranteed success.
נתן גאידאי: Michael Martinez I am just refreshing myselfBasics are keySo I have all of my websites subdomains from www redirected with a 301 to the root domain.I was confused if I need to have an A record for the subdomain www... I guess a 301 is a better idea?
