In my previous publication, I explained what broken links mean and their effects. After the publication, I promised to share the tools to check broken links.
I’ve already mentioned in the previous posts that excessive broken links are bad for human visitors and search spiders.
According to Creating Online, ‘Broken links are like stop signs to search engine robots. They use the links on the pages of your site to follow to other pages at your site. The more pages they crawl, the more content they gather. The more content they gather, the more valuable your site appears to them, and your ranking will be higher! (Not to mention how irritating broken links are to your visitors.) ‘
Today, I want to introduce you to the three free tools you can use to check broken/dead links on your blog/website.
1. Online Broken Link Checker

It’s never been so easy to locate and fix dead weblinks!
