External Linking Guidelines

External linking guidelines

The Society aims to make its online database of food information a high-quality and lasting resource. We therefore present the following guidelines for posting external links (hyperlinks to websites or other media outside of the eGullet.org webspace) in eG Forums discussions:

  • External links are permitted and encouraged to the extent that they substantially further and contribute to the dialogue. We do not permit links posted primarily for the purpose of promoting a business or entity, links to "adult" or "mature content" media, links in lieu of making a substantive post on an eG Forums topic, or links to websites that substantially violate our policies and principles.
  • Web pages and websites that exist today may not exist tomorrow, and online articles are often free only for a fixed period of time. Thus, we suggest that links to external media include a brief summary and/or quotation that makes it possible for readers to understand the spirit of the linked material without the need to follow the link.


This policy, which is incorporated by reference in the eGullet Society for Culinary Arts & Letters member agreement, was last updated on 20 November 2022.
