I am in the campaign of a site. The url was given to me was without "www" and I am doing the high Pr backlinking for 8 weeks and suddenly I found yahoo change my Landing page with the url I am doing and rank it down. So it make me curious why that happened and I checked my web site with and without "www" both exists and the main think is that the number of Gplus and links in the yahoo search are not the same. On page SEO was done with "www". The web site is in google sandbox now. What should I do now??

    I've done this before, I was freaking out too!

    Just change it back to www. and leave it and continue to build links, you'll be fine.

      Get a grip on reality.

      You did on-page SEO on only one page. It's the same page.
      The same friggin' page.

      You only need to worry if your webhost did not make them both go
      to the index place. If this was the case, the url would go
      nowhere, actually.

      Search engines may "think" that it's 2 different pages.

      It's no big deal if you make your backlinks the same.

      You should, from a standard way of doing things, is just 301
      one or the other to the other one.

      It's no big deal.

      Sites bounce around.

      Why is it sooooooooooooo hard for people to realize that google
      does no owe them anything, and certainly does not need to display
      the same old tired results over and over and over...if they feel they
      shouldn't!

      Start building authority. Forget the mythical sandbox.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

        Thanks Paul for your experience suggestions. So will I continue without "www"? or make .htaccess.

    Thank you burrows, Paul and john . I am really new in this field so I get panicked with the situation. If I fix the .htaccess file will it harm to my done SEO?

    Have one version of your website running (preferably it should be the www version) after that build a sitemap also having the URls of the www version. After that you should build
    links for this as well. There is an option in Google Webmaster that allows you to set the www version as default, check this one and you should be fine.
