I am looking into creating a web portal for my website. The web portal will be inside the directory of the main site and the web portal includes the navigation menu of the main site. e.g. the File paths will look like this:
Main Site -> /var/www/html/MySite Web Portal -> /var/www/html/MySite/WebPortal
Inside the web portal I do the following which is included on every page:
The web portal is accessed via virtual host where the document root is set to the web portal path, therefore the navigation menu of the main site can't work as its outside the document root.
Therefore I thought about making the change so each link on the main sites navigation page goes to via the full domain path, e.g. the menu will be
Does using the full domain path instead of the relative path affect SEO, Search Rankings, such as Google Search or Google Analytics tracking data.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
