Broken links happen when a visitor clicks the link and it goes to a page which does not exist or is different from the targeted page. Broken links are often generated by inexperienced starters who are unable to create relative links. Rather, absolute links are created.
Broken links can not only annoy your website visitors but also negatively affect your site’s search engine placements. With broken links, search engines are unable to crawl each of your web pages, and therefore fail to index your web pages. To find the broken link, you do not need to click each link on your site. Rather, there are several software program, or called as broken link checkers.
