Short for permanent link, permalink is a link that enables a user to link to a post, article, web page, or other Internet content that is dynamically created. Permalinks are often automatically created on weblogs and online journals where users often post short comments or daily activities. The permalink allows visitors to link someone else directly to that page or entry.

For example, on our computer dictionary word of the day, the permalink allows the visitor to find a link to the definition that does not change since the word of the day changes daily.
