Welcome to www2
www2, another side to the Internet, read here about why some web publishers use a www2 sub domain, learn about earning money, even a living wage from the Internet and learn how to avoid Scams, Hoaxes, Rogues & Cheats.
Please do NOT confuse www2 with web2.0 or web2
web2.0 is very important, it is all about page content and the number of visitors (viewers) that a website receives. It is content that attracts the search engines and it is very costly to pay writers, authors & journalists to create & update the billions of pages of text content that make up the web.
So companies such as MySpace, BeBo, FaceBook, Blogger etc get YOU the user to write it on "social networking" sites, so YOU write the content, what YOU show or write attracts friends and search engine visitors, then THEY the site owners get rich from the adverts shown to YOUR visitors on each of YOUR pages.
Also learn on this www2 website how to set up your own web Blog so that you can earn all the revenue from adverts that you may choose to put on your Blogsite or you may choose to have a nice clean web Blog with no distracting & annoying adverts at all !
Why do you see www2 in many URLs ( web addresses )?
Many major businesses / internet publishers with very large and complex websites use a sub-domain of www2 to separate technical data or certain customer services from the complexities of their main website. Often they wish to utilise a different server platform or program language for those services, a www2 sub-domain allows the creation of what is effectively a new website without altering or affecting the original, yet has the advantage of still using the original site domain name.
Also in Google Webmasters Tools the subdomain & main domain are treated as one for internal links and pagerank, this allows you to almost immediately transfer some pagerank to a new www2 sub domain page by using a "nofollow" to sacrifice pagerank from an original page.
