    Is it Right to Use Canonical Tag to Set Preferred URL

    Hi everyone,

    I have already set preferred URL (with www) in Google Webmaster tools.

    Do I still need to place <link rel="canonical" href="http://www.mynewsite.com" /> in the home page to tell search engines that this is my preferred url not the other versions.

    Others versions may be these:
    "http://mynewsite.com"
    "http://www.mynewsite.com/index.html"
    "http://mynewsite.com/index.html"

    I think the best way is to use .htaccess file.

    Using the canonical tag should work just fine to set this page as ur perferred url.
