My new website has a blog and a shop both in their own directories. I want to have my WP blog as my home page.

When you type widget.com you would be redirected (301) to the widgets.com/blog/index.php

All the home link inside the website looks like this : widget.com/blog/index.php. or should I just link to widgets.com inside the website too and let 301 do the job?

What is right or better with Sarch engines.

pls clarify

Since you have put in place a 301 redirect for widget.com, so putting link to your home page widget.com will automatically re-directed.

So whether you write the absilute url widgets.com/blog/index.php or just widgets.com, it will always go to one and only place.

You should always point internal links to the preferred (correct) URI, and not to a URI which is subsequently redirected. Let the 301 redirect handle only incorrect inbound links.
