APA Referencing Guide — Webpage
Webpages and blogs referencing guide (PDF download).
- If you cite multiple webpages from a website, create a reference for each.
- If the website does not have a date use n.d. (no date), sometimes the date is right at the bottom of a webpage, e.g. the copyright date.
- To find a publishing date on a website: Right click on the page. Select View page source. Press the Control and F keys, then type the word publish to see if it will find the year it was written.
- Use the organisation name if individual author is unknown.
- If a website does not have an obvious author/ organisation look in the ‘about us' section.
- When the website name is the same as the author, omit the website name from the reference list.
- If you are referencing a long URL, you are encouraged to use a URL shortening service, e.g. Bitly or TinyURL.
- All links should be live if the work is to be read online. Remove the hyperlink if the work in a printed format.
- Only provide a retrieval date if the content is designed to change over time and is not archived. The format is: Retrieved January 12, 2020, from https://www.facebook.com/nationalparkservice/
