Hello.

I am new to this forum and I find it extremely useful reading all the information provided here.

I have developed a website and submitted it to google and I have a question regarding internal links. I am currently using relative links to my pages, like /recipes/filename.aspx. Is this different to google than http://www.cookaz.com/recipes/filename.aspx or even http://www.cookaz.com/recipes/filename.aspx? Which form should I use? Is one of them better than the rest or are they all the same? When I use google webmaster tools to check stats for my website, google reports no internal links. Does this have to do with the relative links I am using?

Thanks in advance,
This is a great forum!

Relative (no domain) and absolute link forms will both pass pagerank to the targeted site.

Relative links will be read as http://www.cookaz.com/relLink.aspx

However, you must be cautious when internally linking for pagerank optimization, because if you subdomain or drop the 'www.', your links will be spread across the board and pagerank will attribute the links to your ghost pages rather than your main page.

it doesn't matter to choose which one... the guideline is that, stick to one type only. if you choose absolute link, then use this only. :)
