You need to choose a preferred version (www or non-www) in webmaster tools so Google will index that version. You also need to 301 redirect the non preferred version to the preferred version.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have questions.

Hey Arnold,


Does it matter which one I pick? According to Search Console the www version has around 1300 clicks, compared to the no-www version which has 80 clicks.
