I haven't been paying any attention at all to the links that I have building to my site until recently. I stumbled upon the fact that my domain, which does not include a forward slash has a relatively low Trust Flow in comparison to the same URL plus the forward slash. It is needless to say that I assumed that there wouldn't be a difference and that the Trust Flow would all pile up onto the main domain regardless of whether backlinks were to include a forward slash or not.
Do correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't this pickle that I find myself in ultimately weaken the potential strength of my articles? If all backlinks were to the domain, wouldn't that make my articles rank higher in google search results?
If so, would you folks recommend a 301 redirect from my domain to the page without a forward slash? Or vice versa? Or would none of that make a difference at all?
I hope the above makes sense. Thanks for any help in advance. =)
