    what is the preferred method of putting your link in your pbn or blog comment or wherever? with or without slash at the end?

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.example.com/">keyword</a>
    or

    Code:
    <a href="http://www.example.com">keyword</a>

    I always put a slash just because I like it that way. I see that it does not make any difference.

    The only time I know of that the slash will make a difference is in the robots file.

    In the robots file, not using the end slash means "this page".

    With the slash it means "all of the pages in this directory".
