What's A Permalink? - May 15, 2009

Permanent links, or “Permalinks”, were first popularized in the world of blogs as a way to link back to individual blog posts. In Vae, designers use permalinks to link to individual entries in a collection.

Why use them? One reason is that they can keep your address bar looking much prettier. Instead of a confusing address with a long string of identifying characters, your address can look something like: http://www.mydomain.com/clean/permalink

Permalinks are also a good practice if you’re concerned about SEO. Search engine spiders give value to addresses that your links produce. Creating permalinks with meaningful names could result in your site appearing higher in search engine results.
