    When backlinking your money site, do you use the / after the TLD?

    Reason I ask is when backlinking the money site, senuke automatically uses the / for social networks, forum profiles, etc.

    Is there a difference whether or not you use the / or not?

    Don't worry, it'll count either way. I mostly backlink subpages though, so I really don't have that issue :)

    Actually there is a difference. There can be a couple of issues if your site isn't setup properly. You should choose which one you want to link to and 301 re-direct the other one to the main URL you want to show. So for example:

    If you want www.website.com then 301 re-direct the www.website.com/ to it. Or vice versa of course.

    If you haven't done this already, you could have two different URL's for your webpage not to mention the infamous index.html issue as well.

    Here is some more information:
