A permalink for a blog post should hyperlink with
rel="syndication" to copies that the author has syndicated onto other sites.
This is a page to page relationship, and thus blog posts in aggregate form, e.g. archive pages, home/updates pages, should NOT use rel="syndication".
Consuming applications can use rel=syndication in a number of ways:
- site specific post and other webaction buttons can discover the syndicated copy for their site.
- connecting POSSE'd comment posts to each other and to the POSSE'd copies of original posts. See http://indiewebcamp.com/comment#POSSE_a_comment for more.
In addition rel=syndication on links from a blog post to syndicated copies of it, those links can also have the markup:
class="u-syndication"which will likely get picked up as part of their containing h-entry object.
- Blog posts can use on links to syndicated copies, in any context, e.g. blog posts in aggregate form like archive pages or home/updates pages, may use class="u-syndication".
