URL Question

If I have 2 different base urls ie: me.here.com and www.here.com... how do I get them recognized as the same site for ranking purposes?

What is the best option?

I was thinking a <no follow> tag on one of them. Assuming the content is duplicate.

Re: URL Question

Do a 301 redirect of me.here.com subdomain to main domain

Re: URL Question

Other than a redirect, do I have any other options?

Re: URL Question

if you have duplicate content why separate... if the subdomain has unique conent then can leave and will be seen as a separate domain by Google at the moment and could get listed more for strategic terms even on front page of results
