Tips and Tricks for various types of Websites
Look at the URL of the material you would like to Perma.cc link. Is it very long and complex? If yes, chances are that it will not stay stable over time. Here are some options for different types of Websites.
When creating a Perma.cc link for a blog post, always use the URL for that specific post, not the URL for the Blog itself. Even if the blog post appears in its entirety on the Blog’s main page, it will not, over time, appear in the live site view when following the Perma.cc link because that entry will eventually move down and then off that page.
Options will vary from blog to blog.
Often, a website will only display the first portion of an article on the initial Webpage. Do not rely on the small preview window when determining if the entire article has been archived.
If the PDF opens in your browser, you can copy the URL from your browser. If it opens in a PDF reader, go back to the page with the link, copy the link location (Firefox on PC: right click the link and select “copy link location”; Internet Explorer on PC: right click the link and select “copy shortcut”)
