About Broken Links Finder

The Internet is a dynamic and rapidly evolving medium. On average, a website lasts no more than four or five years. Domains are transferred or sold, websites are no longer maintained - and suddenly a link, which once pointed to an interesting article, leads nowhere or to completely different content. Deep links, i.e. links to content deep within the directory hierarchy, are particularly concerned. Where do broken ties come from? Broken links can be created when directory hierarchies or URL structures change (for example because the page is converted to a new content management system), without the change being accompanied by appropriate redirections. This type of BrokenLinks can affect both your own site and other areas - for example, if a friend whose article you have linked changes its URL structure and does not think about existing links. Therefore, you should correct Broken Links Broken links do not lead anywhere or at best still to the side of a 404 error. They are not only a nuisance to website visitors, but also a careless and unprofessional impression, but can also damage a website in SEO terms: links that are valuable, so their SEO effect no longer unfolds, and crawlers stop being a Page index when they hit Broken links. The broken links are therefore not an error of beauty. If they occur on a massive scale, they can lead to losses in classification and traffic. In order to avoid creating BrokenLinks, it is recommended to always keep changes to the structure of a website with the setting up of redirects - for example via mod_rewrite rules. But also with great care in a web project, which covers more than a few static HTML documents and is maintained for a long enough period, broken links are created - only because no web site is ever cut off from the rest of the Internet (and would it, then it would be useless). This is why it is useful to remove (or correct) any link that is removed from the link to the site. checkergooglerank.com Broken Link analysis from checkergooglerank.com helps you in this task by checking each link on the specified page and listing the HTTP status code to which it is answered. 200 for found is the best result. Also HTTP status code 301 (permanent redirection) and 302 (temporary redirection) are still testing our test with Okay. Results with HTTP status code 404 (Not found) are broken links - you should follow them. With a link on your own domain, it is worth setting up a redirect to the appropriate document; broken links to other domains must be fixed or deleted. On links that come from outside your domain, you obviously cannot influence as much as on an internal link from your own domain. However, you can also redirect these broken links through redirects: either you redirect users and search engines to the right page or, if that page does not exist, to the most appropriate content, if in doubt on the home page. This way, the precious Linkpower does not leak into a vacuum.
