About Link Relations

a Link Relation is an attribute and value pair used on the Internet wherein the attribute identifies the type of link to which the associated value refers. In Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and Web Linking, the attribute is a "rel" and the value is an "href".

Anyone may define a link relation and register it with IANA, which which maintains a list of registered link relations. One may also define link relations that are URI-based, such as the one shown on this page. A list of such link relations, as well as commonly-used link relations used with WebFinger, can be found on the WebFinger Link Relations page.
