What is a Relative Link? - Accuranker

A link can be absolute or relative. An absolute link shows the full URL of the page being linked, whereas a relative link only shows the part after the domain.

Example of an absolute link: `http://example.com/folder/filename.html

Example of a relative link: ../folder/filename.html

Whilst both versions of the link will work, due to potential issues with canonicalisation, it’s generally best to use absolute links rather than relative links where possible.
