    Internal links to homepage?


    Is there any benefits for having an absolute url linking to your homepage then a relative? Wouldn't a absolute url boost your pagerank and rankings a bit since you have pages linking to it or would it still be the same?

    There is two ways to link to a homepage, but which one is better?

    Google has been open about using absolute links for all your links, but since files size can be an issue, you might not do them all but your homepage link is a must!

    This will ensure spiders can find you page and also properly index it, also means that certain black hat tactics won't affect your homepage.
