broken-website-linksCould broken links be messing with your author website? According to, dead hyperlinks on websites are not just annoying to your website visitors – their existence may cause some real damage to your site as well as to your reputation. 

Broken links on your author website could result in:

  • Losing existing customer base. Current users sooner or later will get frustrated enough to not return)
  • Problems with getting new customers. Because of the dead weblinks people won’t find things/pages they are looking for).
  • A stale or “dated” online reputation
  • A negative impact on your website’s ratings with major Search Engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.

This free URL Checker tool will check your entire sitecrawl all pages searching for issues and detect invalid webpage references on your website. For each bad hyperlink found (both internal and outgoing) you will see a screen that contains page source and highlights the actual HTML tag containing the non-working url, so you can correct the “rot” right away. Meaning, your visitors won’t be annoyed with Page Not Found errors anymore!

Give it a go and let us know if/how well the tool works for you. (We’ve already found and fixed some broken links here that we’d never have realized were there!)
