General SEO Q

My client site has an image in the header which acts as a link back to the home page.

In terms of the link structure, is there any benefit, from a spidering perspective, of using index.php as the link url over just using index.php ?

I am not getting exactly, what you are asking for. Be a bit specific.

Hi Craig,

My approach to linking to the home page is simply to link with / which effectively links to the URL of the domain.

Sometimes if you start to build to index.php it can take it as a duplication of the default page for the domain, so I always try and avoid that by using this approach.

Hope this helps.
