    Hi,
    I have a very ordinary question, but I couldnt find the exact answer searching Google.
    Can anyone answer this.

    While creating inbound links whether I should use file names, or use direct urls to those files?
    For example...

    My website is http://mywebsite.com
    Now when I need to link up services page in the root directory should i use
    <a href="services.html">Services</a>
    or
    <a href="http://mywebsite.com/services.html">Services</a>

    Which has better seo value?

    An one more thing..
    For image files, should i use link to the image or just file and directory names?
    In case of images will it vary load time?


    Thanks for your time..

    For HTML-based sites, developers use the first option. But if it's a WP site (i.e. a dynamic one), one can use the second option. It doesn't make any difference as far as on-page SEO is concerned.

    I agree with hitman. The spyders see the internal links any way and the authority is atributed the same. I've tested this a while back.

    Thanks. It makes sense.
    Sometimes we think search spiders to be too unsmart, but they arent.

    Hi Hitman, thanks for that info. I always thought the 2nd option is the correct one. Turned out you can actually do with both.

    no need to buy so many links. In that money you can buy traffic online.
