Simple Way to Check Site For Broken Backlinks

For all you non-technical users out there, trying to determine if your website has a 404 error or a broken link can be difficult. Fortunately for you, there’s a website called All you need to do is, type in your web address, click on “Find broken links.”

It’s going to do a little security check to make sure I’m human, hopefully, I am. I would suggest clicking the second box down here and then “Find broken links”.

What the system is doing is, it’s going out and it’s looking for broken links. Now, I’ve already run this on the Simple Biz website, you’ll see it’s complete, and it processed 492 pages, zero broken links found. If it had found a broken link, it would list the URL of the webpage that had the broken link. Then you would need to go in, find out where that broken link is and fix it.
