html url formatting affect on google
| 12:30 am on Jun 5, 2003 (gmt 0)|
Which url format is best to use when creating href's?
They all work, and they should all be spiderable, but does google care? or is there a 'best practice' within html?
Cheers in advance.

As long as they point to the right page when evaluated by Google, it doesn't matter.
I prefer using absolute, site root-based urls eg /directory/ - there's no need to use fully qualified url's - except for off site links of course ;)

I dislike ../../../foo/bar/page.html type references as they become very complicated if you later reorganise the structure of the site.
I prefer to specify the full path relative to the root folder.

I usually use /dir/ for my urls as it just makes things so much simpler but its always worth checking with the experts incase theirs something im missing out on.
