How come Google indexes bodydot.com, but not http://www.bodydot.com?

I put a redirect in the .htaccess yesterday to force bodydot.com to http://www.bodydot.com, but that doesn't explain why there is no reference to the index file.

- bodydot.com is a really really new site, like I just finished it Saturday. It's Wednesday.

- I use a 404 redirection to deliver pages to the appropriate program and script. Can the cause something if I don't put the appropriate headers in place?

Have you used webmaster tools available in google? It gives you option to choose http://www.yoursite.com and yoursite.com for indexing purpose and allows you to define this.
In case you haven't tried the option go ahead and review the tool - a must have for webmasters to derive information on their sites.

Thx

I will try that. I forgot about those tools.

I have actually noticed it is indexing the www site now. Wierd.

Yes!

I am amazed at how fast pages are indexed now. Changes I make on Monday, start showing up on Tuesday.

It's great to get such quick feedback on how Google sees your pages.

How do I tell Google, that the content is

"Here is my main text",

and not

"Menu, About, Security. My Account · My Galleries · My Favorites · Browse "

Example Google listing:

Dramatic chipmunk
Menu, About, Security. My Account · My Galleries · My Favorites · Browse Galleries · Search People · Upload · Organize Friends · Organize Favorites ...
www.bodydot.com/view/93/Dramatic-chipmunk.html - 12k - Cached - Similar pages

What I want it to say is:

Dramatic chipmunk
Famous video about that stupid chipmonk ...
www.bodydot.com/view/93/Dramatic-chipmunk.html - 12k - Cached - Similar pages

H1 tags? H2 tags?

Suggestions?
