Find Broken Links with Broken Link Checker

While watching the Affiliate Summit East keynote with Wil Reynolds I got this idea. Mr. Reynolds suggested that all bloggers use a broken link checkers on their blogs. Not only will this allow your blog to stay current is also presents SEO opportunities. For example if you link to another relevant web site and after a few years that site closes its doors you might be able to buy the expired domain. A great WordPress tool I found is called Broken Link Checker http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/broken-link-checker. Broken Link Checker currently has a 4 out of 5 star rating on the WordPress web site.

Key features:

  • Monitors links in your posts, pages, comments, the blogroll, and custom fields (optional).
  • Detects links that don’t work, missing images and redirects.
  • Notifies you either via the Dashboard or by email.
  • Makes broken links display differently in posts (optional).
  • Prevents search engines from following broken links (optional).
  • You can search and filter links by URL, anchor text and so on.
  • Links can be edited directly from the plugin’s page, without manually updating each post.
  • Highly configurable.

Plugin is very easy to install and works great with the current version of WordPress.
