Google Link Speed Difference Between Absolute Vs Relative Links

Google Link Speed Difference Between Absolute Vs Relative Links


Is there a speed difference between using absolute versus relative links and if so, does it matter to Google. I am pretty sure there is no speed difference and I am confident that either way, it won’t matter for Google SEO reasons.

This was a new SEO question that I’ve never seen before, the question was “Do relative links & sources load faster than absolute links?” So are absolute links slower or faster than using relative links and if so, does it matter for Google SEO?

We know that Google sees really no SEO difference between relative and absolute links. And yes, that is logical.

Here is how John replied to the matter of link speed between the two:

John explained that you can test it but he added “I can’t think of any reason why one kind of link would be faster than another though.” True…

So I found this question interesting – how do you make your links faster? I guess the only slow links I can think of are links that load later, maybe through lazy loading and maybe Google won’t see those links right away – sometimes? Although, there are ways to make sure Google sees the content and links within lazy loaded content…

There is so much concern about page speed and page experience for SEO, it gives me mixed feelings.

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google Updates Video Best Practices For Thumbnail Transparency

Google has added one line to its video best practices document explaining that you should have at least 80% of your thumbnail pixels have little or no transparency to enable video indexing.

The new line was added over here and says “Transparency: At least 80% of the thumbnail’s pixels must have an alpha (transparency) value greater than 250.”

This is specifically under the “ensure your videos can be indexed” section of the document.

So if you want those videos or video thumbnails indexed, make sure they are not that transparent.
