A permalink (permanent link) is a URL that points to a specific web page, blog or forum entry. Because a permalink remains unchanged indefinitely, it is less susceptible to link rot. Most modern weblogging and content-syndication software systems support such links. Other types of websites use the term permanent links, but the term permalink is most common within the blogosphere. Permalinks are often simply rendered so as to be human-readable, and do a play a role in on-page SEO.
