Ok we recently redesigned a site using shopsite. We left all pages, including the index.html page in the subdirectory called 'store' that shopsite creates.
We slapped in a redirect so that going to <url> will automatically redirect to <url>/store/index.html
I am also in the process of adding links to this site to some high page ranking sites to help SEO.
My question is this: If I create a link to <url> will google see it as a 'vote' for <url>/store/index.html when it comes to searches?
I know it sounds like a silly question but I do not want to make any assumptions either way.
(Ps I know the best method is to create a link to a specific page but some sites just want the top level url posted, and its those I am asking about)
