I have been having a heck of a time with Googles treatment of url variations such as www.example.com
, etc etc. It seems to come in waves but I have never seen an issue that seems so simple be treated so poorly. I had thought with "Big Daddy" they were getting their act together.
Now it seems suddenly (for the last week) I have a different problem where one of my forums is treated as a different site despite being in a subfolder (not a subdomain) and being linked through the navigation from the main site.
Here is the comparison
From a visitor standpoint, it makes no difference although its costing me around 8K of Coop Weight. Im more curious how this happens more then anything else (as I have seen all kinds of strange Google things, just not this before)
