Additionally to Austin Henley’s answer, you might want to check the copyright notices you signed for your papers. All the IEEE Copyright forms I’ve had so far (latest July 2020) are identical, and say the following (emphases mine):
AUTHOR ONLINE USE
- Personal Servers. Authors and/or their employers shall have the right to post the accepted version of IEEE-copyrighted
articles on their own personal servers or the servers of their institutions or employers without permission from IEEE, provided
that the posted version includes a prominently displayed IEEE copyright notice and, when published, a full citation to the
original IEEE publication, including a link to the article abstract in IEEE Xplore. Authors shall not post the final, published
versions of their papers.
- Classroom or Internal Training Use. […]
- Electronic Preprints. […]
It’s probably a good idea to point to the publication you want people to cite anyways.
And this could help distinguish what the IEEE means by « accepted version of his paper » as opposed to « final published PDF ».
While this difference is rather evident for a journal, where editors typeset the document, the distinction is less easy for conferences where you directly submit a PDF that is then published.
