Fortunately, if we manage our own site(s) we can easily check for broken links and perform redirects or remove/update the links before things get out of hand. I can only imagine how many broken links there are here in the Rain. I wish there was an easy way for us to check all of our pages on this site (instead of one-by-one).

Always check and sometimes more than once. And I go back from time to time and recheck.

Very interesting, Andrew and point taken! 

I will admit that if a page doesn't load or I get a 404, I'm headed back to Google to find another site. I'm not interested in double-checking at all!

Great point!

Since I am retired, I only maintain a blog these days.  I check links as I upload but don't go back and check old links very often.  Pretty tough to keep up when you have hundreds of posts.

Every so often I check the links on my site.   I heard of a site that would check for broken links, but would have to find it again.

  Yes, for sites that I can control.  Something like ActiveRain, there isn't much I can do.

Never heard of this site and I just don't see the purpose of it, but I digress.

 

I use the "Broken Link Checker" plugin for wordpress.  Checks all my links for me.
