To check for broken links, you can use a web crawler tool, such as Xenu’s Link Sleuth or Screaming Frog, to scan a website and detect any broken links. Additionally, you can manually check each link on the web page by clicking on it and ensuring that it leads to the expected destination.
Use a broken link checker tool: There are several free and paid tools available that can scan your website for broken links. Some popular options include Ahrefs, SEMrush, and Screaming Frog.
Use Google Search Console: Google Search Console is a free tool that can help you identify broken links on your website. Simply navigate to the ‘Coverage’ report and look for any errors related to broken links.
Manually check your website: While using a tool can save time, it is still a good idea to manually check your website for broken links. Navigate through your website and click on all links to ensure that they are working correctly.
Fix any broken links: Once you have identified broken links, you should fix them as soon as possible. If a broken link leads to a page on your website, you can update the link to the correct URL. If the broken link leads to an external website, consider removing the link or finding a new URL to link to.
Regularly check for and fixing broken links on your website, you can improve user experience, reduce bounce rates, and maintain a strong SEO performance.
