Above you can see how multiple subpages look like on the sidebar of Notion.

Option 1: The side bar

For the first method, we'll need to got o Notion and make a page, or open an older page, if that's the case.

In the sidebar, you're going to see this: an indicator that shows you the subpages (if there are any), the page's name, the three dots and the plus "+" sign.

Click on the "+" sign, and then start completing your new page.

Going back to the main page, you're going to see a hyperlinked text that contains the subpage's name.

Keep in mind that if you delete that text, Notion will also delete your subpage.

Option 2: Embedding

For the second option on how to link pages in Notion, we're going to write "/page" and select one of the two options there.

If you type "/page" in Notion, you're going to see the "Page" and "Link to page".

"Page" forwards you to a window where you can start editing a new page, while "Link to page" allows you to link a page that's already made, from your library of pages.

In the example above, we chose to link a page that was already made, instead of building a new one.

Yet again, you can see how the text has been hyperlinked to the subpage that we've just created.

Option 3: Share & paste

This option is quite easy and it doesn't require lots of actions, as the heading states.

All you have to do is go to your subpage in Notion page, copy its link, and paste it your main page.

Once you've copied the Notion link, you're going to see this pop-up, just like below.

Option 4: Hyperlinking

Option 5: Mentioning

The fifth and the last method to link a page/subpage in Notion is related to mentioning, though that's pretty much the same as linking.

To use the fifth option, you have to go to your main Notion page and type the "@" symbol.
