Jump to navigationJump to search


The Web Applications 1.0 specification (also known as HTML5) defines a new attribute for <a> elements: ping. This attribute contains one or more URIs to “ping” (send a POST request to) when the user clicks the link. The attribute would be useful for letting websites track visitors’ clicks.

This preference restricts the number of URIs to which pings will be sent.

Possible values and their effects

A non-negative integer indicating how many URIs to ping from the ping attribute. URIs are processed in the order they appear in the attribute. (Default is 1)
