When you are editing a content that has lots of links, wouldn't it be handy to quickly check that all the links on the page are working? 'Broken Link Checker' scans your page or the whole site and provides a broken links report within a few minutes. The report is generated directly without installing and running any additional program files.
Then 'Broken Link Checker' highlights which links are functioning and which ones are broken.
In addition to the website internal links check, we analyze the external links availability. If the site contains at least one external link (nofollow or dofollow) with 404 error, it is shown in the report. The report contains link to page where 404 error was found, so you can fix it immediately.

# WHY TO CHECK YOUR BROKEN AND DEAD PAGES There are several factors that can improve the "visibility" of your page and influence its ranking in Google and other search engines. An important aspect of search engine optimization is work with content; the promotion success depends on content quality and quantity.
Many blogs, articles and services offer guides and recommendations on content organization, keyword selection and compilation of semantic core. However, the topics of monitoring and tracking the content availability are mostly overlooked.
# WHY BROKEN LINKS CAN DAMAGE YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS
## CUSTOMER ASPECT A potential client visits the site to get some information and cannot find it because the page is not available. At best, customer goes to other pages on the site, and at worst just leaves the site. Your bounce rate increases and the client is lost.
## SEARCH ENGINE VISIBILITY If a site contains too many pages with a response code "404", it can have a negative impact on your website's ranking in major search engines. The entire site or individual pages may receive a Google penalty, site rankings can fall, and the number of visits will be reduced.
## LOSING BACKLINKS The number of incoming links to your website impacts search engine ranking. Any website owner knows how difficult it is to get quality links and references. At the same time, not enough attention is given to monitoring the availability of external linked pages.
## BROKEN LINKS = LOST OPPORTUNITIES Creating and managing website content is a complex process, which is always associated with many manual adjustments. Multiple site editors, frequent updates, the need for regular content updating - all these processes increase probability of various errors. The most important errors associate with the creation and addition of non-existing pages or broken links.
Despite the fact that the link verification is an obvious need, most webmasters and site owners do not give enough attention to this issue or just ignore it. They lose opportunities to promote their own site because of this very trivial problem.
## WHY BROKEN LINKS ARE BAD? First of all, they leave a bad feeling about your company or product and you can lose a potential customer. You should respect customers and display only working content! Also, broken links make your site indexing by search engines more complicated, and, therefore, reduce the possibility of the correct ranking of your website.
