This link accesses a student paper in APA style. Although this paper does not use running heads (which APA recommends), note the formatting of the citations for web pages in the References page. In the citations to various different web pages all found on the IBM website, note that the author distinguishes among them by noting that the date references for them ("n.d." for "no date") include the addition of "a," "b," etc. following the "n.d.": (n.d.a.), (n.d.b.), (n.d.c.)," etc. That way, the reader can tell exactly which specific web page found on the same web site he is referencing within his paper.
