I like using Google documents but I want to be able to tag my documents properly (without using a hierarchy structure)

My plan is to create the documents in Google docs and then link to them in Delicious. The URLs seem to contain a string of characters that look something like a GUID. Does anyone know if these are guaranteed not to change and if not how I can achive the effect I want?

From this Google help entry, it would seem the urls are permanent until you reset them

Thanks, I've got them in delicious and everything seems to be working fine – Willbill Dec 6 '10 at 17:04

Based on the feature to share documents with 'anyone with the link' the Google Docs links look to be stable (unless the owner chooses to reset them).

Alternatively, you can create the links using the Google Docs viewer:

I don't want to create a new public link just to have a link to my documents that wont change so I can navigate to to them externally I don't exactly understand what the page you posted the 'viewer' link about does – Willbill Dec 6 '10 at 17:07
