I don't know if this is where I should post this, but it seemed to be the closet fit so here it goes.
I have a HostGator account (Baby package) so I only get one main domain. I have an add-on domain and this is the only domain that has content so far (HTML site).
I got indexed in Google for my-add-on-domain.com and was on page 24 with no extra work put in. I didn't like the domain looking like that so I went into the Google Webmaster Tools and requested that all URLs be listed as www.my-add-on-domain.com. I just like the look of the www at the beginning.
Anyway, when I was checking things out today, my site is now on page 9 after some backlinking, but the URL in Google is now mymaindomain.com/www.my-add-on-domain.com/ and this is not what I want AT ALL!
Does this have anything to do with how I set up my add-on domain in cPanel or does it have to do with the request I made in the Webmaster Tools mentioned above?
What is the fix for this so that my site shows up as www.my-add-on-domain.com on the Google SERPs? :confused:
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
P.S. I did a live chat with HostGator and they said they have no control over what Google displays. I understand that, but I had another add-on domain a couple months ago that did not display the main domain in the URL and I didn't set that one up any differently than I did my new add-on domain.
