I want to double check and make sure this is correct:


If it's not, please tell me! :shock:

A related question: I received a message telling me I should add every version of my site. I did so, combining them into a "set":

Is that necessary? I'm such a good little doobie I usually do what I'm told, but I know from experience that SBI! handles a lot of the details for us, so maybe adding all four versions is not necessary.

This is a new website, i.e., I did not have to transition from "http://" to "https://".

The settings look fine to me, Mark. Your site can be viewed in various versions by search engines. I don't think
it can hurt to submit all the versions, since SBI! does add a canonical tag to all pages, which notes the www.
version as the "preferred" version.

This ensures that only http://www.domain-name.com/a.html is indexed and ranked by the engines, which
increases that page's rank, since the content's ranking is not being split among several pages.
