SEO Quiz – Part 1: URLs
Inspired by Rand’s SEOmoz Quiz, I thought I would start a new series here called SEO Quiz. The goal here is to ask some questions about search engine optimization and generate some discussion about favored methods.
Hopefully, these questions and answers will become useful bits of information for SEOs. Every week I’ll post a new question and leave it up for comments throughout the week. At the end of the week, I’ll pull out the most notable comments and summarize what people thought were the best practices. Of course I will add in my thoughts as well.
So lets start off with the first question.
Q: When linking to the homepage from an internal page, which of the following URLs is the best choice?
- A: /
- B: http://www.mydomain.com
- C: http://www.mydomain.com/
- D: http://www.mydomain.com/index.html
