The dispute between absolute links and relative links continues to rage on in the field of search engine optimization. Although the relative and absolute merits of each have been contested, it is generally recognized that absolute links are more beneficial to SEO than relative links on the whole.
Many people believe that absolute links have a lower chance of being misinterpreted by search engines when they index your content. It shouldn’t make much of a difference, but many people believe that this is sufficient justification.
Furthermore, content scrapers and RSS services may be able to properly “repurpose” your information in other ways (or not). It seems to me that in either instance, a genuine back-link to your site should be given credit. Absolute linkages are more advantageous in this circumstance. Despite the fact that this is a minor point, it is nonetheless worth examining.
