Blogger Tip #2: Checking Blog for dead links

Did you know your blog might have a bunch of dead links that you are still linking to?
The recent Bloggiesta weekend revealed that I hadn't checked for this ever.

To check for dead links, you can go to

This will check for dead links in your blog, website or any webpage and give you a complete list. When I tried it, I got about 85 links that the site said I had to manually check - most of those were "Tag searches" and worked fine on clicking.

Pin It!


  1. I know the W3C had something that checked links on a site--I didn't know it worked for blogs, though. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Oh this is great Dee, thanks for the link! I know there's at least one blog in my stupidly long blogroll that's defunct but I haven't the time or energy to go through them all. This should help, cheers!

  3. Wow, that's gonna be a handy link to have around. Thanks so much for posting that!

    (I'm an old follower, too.)

  4. You know what? It looks like I somehow was NOT an old follower. I thought I'd been following you for at lesat the last year, so I'm puzzled. But I re-followed, so all is well. :)

  5. Maybe you deleted me when I stopped posting in Feb (re: had a baby)? ;) Thanks for checking and following again!

  6. Thanks for the tip. I'll have to remember to check my links more closely.


Thank you for the comment! I will always reply to each comment, and if you leave a link, comment on your site as well.
