Many will have this question in mind – that why in SEO it is said to have relative links only. Why not the other links that are not relative to your website. After all a backlink is a backlink?
Relative links is needed because – Google largely caters to relative links that you can produce – for your website or blog – if you are having non-relative links Google will count that – but it will not affect your search engine ranking position.
Largely backlinks are produced to raise your search engine ranking. Therefore, you should have relative links that Google favors.
Now, it’s not only that Google favors it – but also relative links have their own distinctive property as well – and that is. If you place a link relative to your website/blog – its more likely that people will visit through that link – and it will not be counted as link just for the search engine.
So, relative links placed correctly produces traffic for your website too – therefore one needs to take care of the relative links more that just the backlinks.
Relative links can produce consistent traffic and search engine ranking for your website/blog. Therefore; next time if you require backlinks for your website/blog – think about placing relative links.
