The HTML base tag is used to specify a base URI, or URL, for relative links. For example, you can set the base URL once at the top of your page, then all subsequent relative links will use that URL as a starting point.

For Example:

<html>
<head>
<base href="http://www.quackit.com/javascript/" target="_blank"/>
</head>
<body>
<p>Learn about <a href="javascript_arrays.cfm">JavaScript Arrays</a></p>
</body>
</html>

The base tag specifies the base URL or target for all relative URLs in a document. It is indicated as <base> in HTML codes.

Yes, nicely described. Actually the base tag tells the browser what the base URL for elements should be. If you are using full-path URLs with no <base> tag, then the browser assumes that the base URL is the current domain name.

Specifies the default target for all hyperlinks and forms in the page. The <base> tag goes inside the <head> element. The <base> tag does not support any event attributes and any standard attributes.

The base tag specifies a default URL and a default target for all links on a page:
<head>
<base href=”http://www.abc.com/images/” />
<base target=”_blank” />
</head>

The <base> tag specifies the base URL/target for all relative URLs in a document.

The <base> tag goes inside the <head> element.
The <base> tag is supported in all major browsers.

The base tag specifies a default URL and a default target for all links on a page. It allows other URLs in the document to use relative addresses that are relative to the base URL.

Hi Adamscot as I have already mentioned that, the HTML base tag is used to specify a base URL, for relative links. Yeah of course it has effect on ranking as by this tag we can know the dead pages (404 errors) of our website.

Thank You

Keyword density is the percentage of times a keyword or phrase appears on a web page compared to the total number of words on the page...:)

Ensure that the base tag contains the complete url to the current folder level or to the full URL of the page it is on. Basically, the base tag treats relative urls as absolute url by including its href value to any relative url.
