This is another one of those areas in SEO or website development that you shouldn’t be concerned about. My advice would be to keep it consistent.
Which Is Better? – Absolute Or Relative URLS?
I prefer absolute urls. That’s just a preference. Google doesn’t care so neither do I, really. I have just gotten into the habit of using absolute urls.
- What is an absolute URL? Example – http://www.hobo-web.co.uk/search-engine-optimisation/
- What is a relative URL? Example – /search-engine-optimisation.htm
Relative just means relative to the document the link is on. Move that page to another site and it won’t work. With an absolute URL, it would work.
