Relative versus Absolute links...
From Brett LaCroix at Mall-Rat.com on 11 May '00
Do SE spiders see absolute links the same as relative links... when they are spidering your site?

In other words will they follow this link:

http://www.mall-rat.com/departments/clothing-fashion/clothing-fashion.htm

the same as they would:

../departments/clothing-fashion/clothing-fashion.htm


I have 100's of pages in my mall... and I want to put a link from my home page to a page that has a link to every page on my site.

I found some software that will spider my site and give me a list of every URL... but these will all be absolute links....

Just need to know if there is a difference...

Also, is having one page, linked from my home page, with every page on my site listed... a good idea?

Thanks,

Brett
