Relative Vs Absolute Url Or Path And Google's Preference...
Posted 14 August 2008 - 07:24 PM
Is this true? Is it OK to use the simpler relative URL for internal links and src image listings?
Thanks! Sorry if this is in another thread. I've looked around, and I'm happy to go to where you refer me.

No they don't. It's all the same to them.
The reason you've heard it mentioned is that in some cases, absolute URLs can be helpful such as when you have 2 domains parked at the same address.
But for most websites having relative URLs is perfectly fine. Google certainly does not "prefer" one over the other. You just help them do their job in complicated circumstances when you use absolute ones.
Added: while we haven't had this question in awhile, I know we have numerous past threads that provide more info. Please see these ones for more:
