How to Find Broken Links on your WebsiteIn this post I’ll show you how to find broken links on your website and fix them.

Nobody likes to click on a link and get an error page. It’s frustrating, and as a website visitor you usually just give up.

Picture this, as a website owner, you want your customer to go to a great post about something amazing but, instead, your reader gets the dreaded 404 error page. Odds are, they gave up after that error and left your website. That’s not good for anyone.

Another problem with broken links is that search engines don’t like them. You need search engines to show your webpages to potential customers, and it’s more difficult for search engines if the internal link is broken.
