Find broken links on your website

Why care?

To the Internet, a website's link structure is its backbone. Search engines weigh it heavily when determinig what the website is about. For them, a website's link structure is sort of it's fingerprint. Having insight into your URL structure will enable you to clarify it.

When users click a link, they WANT the content behind it. When you give them a 404 Not Found response, you are saying I don't care.

Broken links or dead links hurt SEO and usability, thus your bottom line.

What is tested?

- whether your website uses the "www" prefix properly
- whether your website handles missing files properly (should return 404)
- all links on internal pages are followed, broken links are reported (anchors, images, stylesheets, scripts, frames, iframes, maps, redirects)
- external URLs linked from internal pages are followed as well (and there we stop)
- documents burried too deeply are reported [16 hops]
- reports character-set errors
- reports content-encoding errors
- reports connection errors
- reports connection timeouts
- redirects are followed
- full session support
- HTTP, HTTPS protocols supported
