Thanks for the replies but I don't think that's what happening.

This kind of makes sense but it doesn't explain why it was dropped in July
and returned in August as a 6 and dropped again in September.  I've been
maintaining a 6 on both http:// and htpp://www pages previous to July.

Most of the incoming links are pointing to http://www but there are also a
significant amount of http:// incoming links.  Given a choice I prefer
http:// over http://www.  All internal links on the site are http://

The thing is it's not two pages it's just one /index.html.  So Google
shouldn't be calling it duplicate content because its only one page.

I suspect this isn't much to worry about but I don't understand why it's
