I just wanted to know if anyone else had noticed that by having your site URL written on other sites but not linking to your actual site, had helped in your search engine rankings.
bingohall.com – Does this help?
http://www.bingohall.com – I know this does.
Was that your question Roo? Reading this again, maybe you meant if it will count as a backlink if it’s a hyperlink without the www subdomain?
The www subdomain is really not needed, and often is the incorrect way of accessing a site. Depending on your ISP/server, http://www.bingohall.com and bingohall.com will be different, the same, or redirects. Your email isn’t roo(at)http://www.binghall.com – neither should your web address be.
It’s really useless, saying duba-u, duba-u, duba-u my site dot com waste a lot of time in commercials and so on!
Additionally, (www.)bingohall.com/ is the best way to link to your site, don’t forget the slash.
ever – ever – ever!!!
use just with www or without
otherwise you’ll get big problemos!!!
It seems like this would be unbenificail.. if someone searches for ladies of holdem.. that site also says ladiesofholdem.com on it.. just guessing here though..
A more detailed answer if you are bored:
Just like your computers file system, URLs are hierarchical in structure.
The very first thing that’s done to resolve the URL is that the base directory is located – everything after the right of the final / is ignored. Looking to the right of the final slash gives us the final segment of the URL, the document being requested. A slash at the end tells us that the final segmant is null, and to look no further. When no slash is used, the final segment cannot be assumed by the server, and in most cases the web server sends a redirect message, then the browser requests the correct page to display.
So basically, as you already know these redirection errors take place behind the scene, and URLs without a final forward slash will still load. However, this can waste time and resources. Considering the massive amount of users and content on the internet, this could amount to a lot of wasted time…
Additionally, the browser automatically assumes that with just a hostname request you want the main index to display. This means that hostnames with final slashes are only in good form.
