Creating links & backlinks

Connect your thoughts and ideas with links! Every time you make a link, Notion creates a backlink for you automatically. We'll show you how this can be helpful as you're managing tasks & projects, building a company wiki, or just taking some notes.

  • As your Notion workspace grows, links and backlinks make it easy to connect related pages.

  • To create a link, hit the opening bracket key twice, start typing the name of the page you want to link to, and select the page when it shows up. This will automatically create a backlink at the top of your page.

    • When you click on any of these backlinks, you’ll be automatically taken to the part of the text where the page was mentioned.

    • Backlinks help you discover related pages about specific topics. They're like your very own “references" section, one that is created automatically.

  • Links in Notion are dynamic and update themselves. If you change a page's title or icon, every link to that page will automatically update.
