Hi Tom :-)
Have you made sure to change the Default URL in the GA Property Settings page and Website's URL in any View Setting pages to now also include the www?
If you have, then if it offers an option to ignore or dismiss the diagnostic msg, choose that instead of rechecking.
The diagnostic msgs can take a while to update as they are dependant on the pages being crawled which may take a while to occur.

Thanks for the reply Bronwyn : )

Yep everything has been set in place over a week ago. Everything links up to www.

I havent got another option to ignore or dismiss. I guess I will just wait it out?

Is that the best thing to do for now? I Would just hate to think this is negatively impacted my ranking.

Thanks again!
