Hello. I'm Joomla! user and I've noticed that when I create internal links, the editor removes the domain. So my link is for example "en/some-article". Of course there are no browsing issues but I've started to wonder if this is good for SEO. Does Google count this link as a "http://www.mysite.com/en/some-article" or not? And if it's not then whats the negatives. Excuse my potentially silly question ;) Best regards!

a url in that form is considered an absolute-path relative reference which is relative to a base URI. The base URI is defined by the document from which the relative reference links. it is the job of the user agent (browser or crawler) to "know" the base URI against which relative references are applied.
A relative reference that begins with a single slash character is termed an absolute-path reference.
