So my question here is about what happened when I requested 'fetch as Google'
Below is the result:

Do you have allergies? Find out! - Educate Yourself Everything About Allergies Allergies was redirected to Do you have allergies? Find out! - Educate Yourself Everything About Allergies Allergies (without the www)



so what does this mean exactly???


Also what is the difference between fetch and fetch/render?

Any takers?

    Hey there. I'll answer your questions for you.

    1 - When you install Wordpress, you're asked if you want the domain to be installed on domain.com or www.domain.com

    It looks like when you set up your website, you chose the domain WITHOUT www. So, if you navigate to the www. version of your website it will automatically redirect back to the non-www. version. Google Webmasters is just telling you this.

    What you should do is set up a 301 redirect to whichever version you intend to use.

    2 - Difference between 'Fetch' or 'Fetch and Render'.

    Fetch will grab just your page's source code, whereas Fetch and Render will grab your page's source code AND associated images/stylesheets, etc and attempt to display it.

    Hope that helps.

    Good luck in your ventures my friend!
