What is Absolute Link?
« on: January 04, 2012, 12:44:17 PM »
A link which shows the full URL of the page being linked at. Some links only show relative link paths instead of having the entire reference URL within the a href tag. Due to canonicalization and hijacking related issues it is typically preferred to use absolute links over relative links.

An absolute link defines a specific location of the Web file or document including: the protocol to use to get the document, the server to get it from, the directory it is located in, and the name of the document itself.

An absolute link shows the entire destination address in the link tag. This exact destination address is referred to as an absolute path.
