I tried to set up 301 redirect with godaddy but it didn't work. What I would like to do is to setup http://example.com to point to http://www.example.com so that SEO knows these 2 sites are the same site. I did it about a month ago and I thought I did it right but nope since I just found out that SEO still thinks these 2 sites are different sites.

The way I did was I set up a forwarding to point to http://www.example.com and choose 301 option.

Can you advise me how to set up 301/302 redirect with godaddy?

Thank you

I'm sorry "example.com" is just something I made up.

301 redirects are generally recommended for SEO purposes. See: http://www.stonetemple.com/articles/3...

However, my understanding is that a 301 redirect requires you to upload an .htaccess file to the root directory of your site.

In SynthaSite you do not have access to the root directory. Any file you upload is added to a sub directory. So as far as I know this can't be done in SynthaSite.
