Hi

My website started without non www and www URL redirect

When i set up universal analytics i set as default domain http://mywebsite.com

 

After a seo optimization we added a 301 redirect from non www to www domain

 

we also have 2 subdomain like blog.mywebsite.com

 

i was wondering is i can leave default account URL http://mywebsite.com or it would be better to change it to http://www.mywebsite.com, does it make any difference?

 

For new account since on some website we could add in future subdomains would it be better to set up domain with or without www?

 

Thanks

If the site is accessed via http://www then include it when you enter the website url for the property
Somethings may not work correctly if the default website url is not entered correctly.
It can also be confusing for anyone else working with the account if settings do not match the correct setup of the site.

is not going to mess up older statistics?
