Using Permalinks - HTML

Most blogs include several methods to browse their content:

  • The most recent articles are posted in descending order on the main page.
  • Search features enable users to find articles containing content that interests them.
  • Archives list articles by day, week, or month and have controls to move from article to article.

The advantage to having multiple methods of displaying content is that visitors to the site can choose the method that best suits their needs. However, other blog authors need one location to reference an article when linking to it from their site/blog. Enter the concept of permalinks, a unique URL that points directly to the article in question, usually on a page all by itself (without being buried in a navigation scheme).

You will typically see permalinks near the bottom of the text of blog articles. permalink

Permalinks, usually located near the end of articles, provide a unique URL to reference the article.

Sometimes blog authors use the verbatim text “permalink” to denote the location of the permalink. Other blogs, such as the example shown in Figure, note the link with a graphic or simple “link” text. Whenever you link to another blog’s content, be sure to use the permalink.
