The important thing is to select the non-www URL as your preferred option, as Marlinda explained.

Always use //yoursitename without the www to send all traffic.

It doesn't matter whether a visitor types www or not, WA hosting is
set up to accept both. The visitor will end up on the non-www.

In the All in One SEO setting, tick the Canonical URL setting. This ensures Google will not see these as 2 different websites but as one website. See Screenshot.

I can't seem to get my posts indexed by google. I have sent them a sitemap, I have sent them the URL for every post and I have signed up for google analytics. I added the the footer code. They have indexed nothing.

Your site is being indexed just fine - see first Screenshot.

You might be confusing getting "indexed" with getting "ranked". Yes, getting ranked for keywords is a bigger challenge.

I have been following the training and i will take a look at any SEO info. Thanks for that lead. I'm just confused now. I feel a whole lot better though.

Thank you

Make sure that in WP > Readings > Settings, at the bottom of the page, the little box next to Search Engine Visibility is NOT ticked.

See Screenshot.

If it has never been ticked, could you take a screenshot of where you see that zero indexed, and add it in a reply here so I can figure out why that is so. ~Jude

Go into your site's dashboard.

Click on the wheel thing to the right, click site settings and choose your preferred version.

This is the task I am trying to complete from Google Search Console.

Have you done this? I can't figure out how to add more than one in my SEO settings.
