    I have no idea what you're talking about, but I have a feeling the answer is something like this:
    Code:
    <a href="hxxp://www.yourdomain.com">I am a keyword</a>

    I think he is wondering if it matters when building links to put that url as http://domain.com or www.domain.com I would like to hear peoples experience with this as well, if it best to pick one and stick with it or to mix it up with the two different ways.

    Search engines may think http://www.yourwebsite.com and http://yourwebsite.com are two different sites.You should set up a permanent redirect (technically called a "301 redirect") between these sites. Once you do that, you will get full search engine credit for your work on these sites.

    I put my redirect in cpanel. Also change my google webmaster settings : under Site configuration - Settings - Preferred domain and you choose what type of domain you want ;)

    Make sure the redirect is a 301 redirect (I do .htaccess). Last I heard it didn't matter in google whether it is www or not, but I've always said it's better to be safe than sorry.

    I always include the"http://"

    As for whether to use the "www.", match it do how you set up your site's domain. I never use the "www." for my sites so I don't put it in my links...

    Just my two cents.
