Which Is Better – Absolute Or Relative URLs?

What is the difference between absolute and relative URLs?

The big difference is that absolute URLs will always include the domain name of the website with http://www. Relative links show the pat to the file or refer to the file itself, which is useful because it can transfer a user from point to point within the same domain.

In the following episode of AskGoogleBot, John Muller talks about this difference, and goes into if there is a preference in how a search engine crawls and indexes them. Something like this could be quite useful if you’re running your HVAC website, or for any kind of website, for that matter.
