I'm afraid that in HTML that is not possible. Page numbers are used in
books to refer to an index entry, but on a web site we don't have page
numbers: Where would we apply the links? What I usually do with my web
index is: use first-level entries for the general concept and second or
third level entries for concepts more concrete.

P.ej:

In document A:

#+INDEX: GNU Emacs!external packages!projectile

In document B:

#+INDEX: GNU Emacs!external packages!helm

Links to document A and B go to projectile and Helm

Anyway, I think in this scenario it's better to use tags, but
org-publish doesn't provide tags out of the box. You need to do some
elisp hacking to get something like blog tags in your web site.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
