Learn how to use the license rel link tag to improve your site.

The "license" link relation specifies a URL where a license associated with the linked document can be found. This is particularly useful for content that is published under a specific license requiring attribution or restricting usage.

Code Examples

Directly points to a page where the license text is fully described.
Points to a homepage or a generic page, not specifically to a license text.


  • Choose the Right URL
    Ensure the URL provided leads directly to the license text, not to a generic page. This improves clarity for users and search engines.
  • Use for Publicly Licensed Content
    Most effective for content that is published under open licenses like Creative Commons, which allows others to reuse or modify the content under specified conditions.
