  • Our Broken Link Checker is a tool is developed to scan your website for broken or inactive hyperlinks. It detects links that no longer work, such as those leading to missing pages or unavailable content, and provides you with a report so you can take action to rectify the issues.

    Why Broken Link Checking Matters

    1. User Experience: Broken links disrupt the user experience, leading to frustration and potentially driving visitors away from your site.

    2. SEO Optimization: Search engines, like Google, consider broken links as a negative factor in their ranking algorithms. Fixing them can improve your SEO.

    3. Website Reputation: A site with numerous broken links can diminish its credibility and reputation, which can have a negative impact on your brand.

    2. Initiate the Check: Start the scanning process. The tool will crawl your URL, examining all links and identifying any that are broken.

    4. Fix Broken Links: Visit the pages containing broken links and either update the links to point to the correct URLs or remove the broken links.
