    Hello.

    I've got 400 backlinks to my website in format: http://homepage.com
    and 200 backlinks to the same website but in format: http://homepage.com/

    Is any difference between backlinking with / or without / in URL ?

    its good to diversify your links, sometimes add "www" sometimes with http:// sometimes without, etc...

    it's not so important. better pay attention at link quality and donors checking

    It would be great if you could find the post that states that. I would like to look at it.

    Personally, I wouldn't have thought it made that much, if any, difference at all but will wait for confirmation from an expert.

    You can create backlinks to both for diversity. Make you you use proper canonicalization techniques.
