July 21st, 2005, 10:47 AM #1PR question: Direct vs. Relative internal links
I'm developing the internal link structure for my website. I want to make sure every page on my website casts a PR vote for my home page. Is there a difference between using absolute and relative links?
Which one of these should I use:
<a href="/">Link to home page</a>Code:
<a href="http://www.my-home-page.com/">Link to home page</a>
Thanks in advance!

Absolute or relative should work the same. Most suggest absolute just to make sure the spiders don't get confused, but in reality all of the important ones handle it fine.

Good to know relative and absolute links are the same.

If you use relative links, be sure to have a <base href="http://yourdomain.com/yourpage.htm"> in the page <head>, or you could be the victim of a 302 redirect, basically another site yanking your pagerank out from under you.
