Search engines will often regard www.example.com and example.com as two different websites. Because of this, websites usually experience the effects of link fragmentation (inbound links point to both www.example.com and others to example.com). For example, if www.example.com has 5,000 inbound links and example.com has 2,500 inbound links you could potentially combine them so you have all 7,500 links pointing to www.example.com.

Recently we wanted to use PHP includes in an existing site so I could make updates to common parts of the site faster by editing one file (e.g.: header, navigation, footer, etc.). The problem was the site was designed with all pages ending in .html. Of coarse we could have changed all the pages to .php but the site has very good search engine rankings, and many other sites already link to these .html pages. After a little research, we found the solution to be the .htaccess file.
