How to sort Canonical linking on Google

Seemed to having a problem with the canonical linking of the site for Glastonbury B&B , Glastonbury Self Catering , Polzeath and Surfing Religion websites.

What i needed to do was specify your preferred domain with google:

1. On the Webmaster Tools Home page, click the site you want.
2. Under Site configuration, click Settings.
3. In the Preferred domain section, select the option you want.

You may need to reverify ownership of your sites. Because setting a preferred domain impacts both crawling and indexing, we need to ensure that you own both versions. Typically, both versions point to the same physical location, but this is not always the case. Generally, once you have verified one version of the domain, we can easily verify the other using the original verification method. However, if you've removed the file, meta tag, or DNS record, you'll need to repeat the verification steps.
