View Full Version : Internal Pages

11-14-2006, 04:14 PM
In trying to get as high up in Google as possible I have been researching SEO.

I came across a statement which said - when you link pages within your site always use the full URL.

Is this important or false?

Bottom line is I haven't!

Using Dreamweaver to link my internal pages I used the link function - the pages link but when I view the source code on the web I just see the page title not the full URL.

But if I use the hyperlink option to create my internal links isn't that a negative from SEO point of view as it looks like I'm linking to an external site everytime I link my internal pages?

It would not look like you're linking to an external website, it would look like you're linking to your own website. Why would it look like you're linking to another website?

I don't think anyone has proof that searchengines like absolute links better than relative links. There's really no motivation either. Why would absolute paths make a page more important (in terms of ranking)? The result pages would be skewed, not based on relevancy, but based on wether the site uses relative or absolute linking philosophy. I think you can relax on this matter :)

Whoever made that statement is the one that should be asked the question. Which source did that quote come from?
