Google’s John Mueller stated that altering from www to non-www in your area should not change a lot. I believe he implies that doing that would not harm or profit your rankings that a lot and Google will probably decide up on the change and the rankings wouldn’t endure a lot from the change.
John was requested:
We’ve a big web site and needed to change the area url (take away www. ). The Dev guys selected to implement 301 through Consumer Agent “Mozilla”. I anticipated some affect nevertheless it appears to be getting worse over time (3 weeks now). I’m now questioning whether or not Google recognises this for of 301 when rating pages?
John responded on Mastodon:
Server aspect redirects (like 301) do not use user-agents, so I believe you misunderstood one thing there :). Altering www / non-www doesnt’ actually change a lot, so in case you’re seeing larger modifications, that might probably be one thing else.
Normally, altering from HTTP to HTTPS or WWW to non WWW, these kinds of modifications, Google could be very fast to select up on these modifications and rankings mustn’t endure from these sorts of modifications. It’s whenever you change some URLs, URL constructions and parts of your site that Google is slower to react with.
