We encourage any websites with an interest in National Statistics to create links to our website. You do not require explicit permission to do so, but if you let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org that you have done so, it may help us to help you in the future.
What should I link to?
Unless you are referring to a specific document on the site, we recommend that you point to our homepage only. By definition, our material is updated on a very regular basis, and you may find your link points to a page which becomes outdated. Furthermore, as the site develops, we cannot guarantee that all low-level links will remain permanently active.
Can I use the National Statistics logo as a link to your site?
If you want to create a graphical link to National Statistics Online, we have created a selection of buttons based on the National Statistics logo, which you are free to use without seeking additional explicit consent.
To add one of these buttons to your page, simply copy the line of HTML code right of the button of your choice, and paste it into the HTML code of your page. There is no need for you to download the button to your own server; the code points to the image held on our server, for your convenience.
If you have any problems with these buttons, or any questions about linking to us, please email email@example.com.
Do you offer more advanced functions, such as syndication?
Yes. We offer a simple XML feed of our homepage's top stories, in RSS 0.91 format. Ask your website's technical manager if you can incorporate our headlines on your website using this feed. Some behind-the-scenes programming (at your end) will probably be required.
