Finding broken links on website? Best Method

By dora556 ·
Hi,
I'm working on a website of a dental clinic in Burlington (link removed by moderator). Some of the pages show 404 error even if the page exists. When clicked on some link it shows content you’re looking for no longer exists. I know that manually checking for a broken link is a poor solution. So I used a plugin to find the broken links. But it slows down the entire website. Is there any other effective method that you can recommend?

Finding broken links

by rashmivanwani2854 In reply to Finding broken links on w ...

It is very important for every website owner that removing broken links is very important because the way a search engine crawls the site is by crawling the link. If a site contains broken links it may stop search engine to crawl. Thus it is very important to delete the deal links.

Mostly I prefer to use a broken link check.
