Check Your Website Links

A quick and terribly useful hint for website updates: check your website links by clicking them after you’ve updated your site. I just found out that the interviews category link was broken. I accidently clicked it and found out this.

Don’t just believe that you’ll copy & paste everything okay… make sure to click the links you place – especially the download and purchase links. Check them also when you place them to different web pages. Make sure the links work.

EDIT: James & Ken recommended free link checking software Xenu’s Link Sleuth which seems to work nicely. Thanks for the tip guys.

  1. Agreed with the above comment.

    I ALWAYS use Xenu to check the site after publishing, it often catches something!

  2. You can use Xenu’s Link Sleuth (which is free) to automatically check your links. Very handy.
