Hi Im new to the whole SEO world and I was wondering if anyone could give me advice regarding fixing broken links. I used Xenu Link Sleuth and found the URLs of all the broken links but how do I know which page had the broken link on it. How do I locate the broken link based on the URL.. thanks

Do a search on Google for Xenu Link Sleuth. It'll do all of that and tell you which pages contain the faulty linking code. wink1.gif

I haven't use Xenu in a long time, but from what I recall, you can double click on the 404 link or generate a report that will tell you the originating source of the 404.

Oops! That's what I get for speed reading. lol.gif

Right click on the links that show up in Red and show a Not Found in the Status section. Then choose Properties. At the bottom of the window that pops up it'll show you which page or pages are linking to it.

Or have Xenu create a report and it provides two lists of broken links. One ordered by broken links and all pages linking to it and one page showing pages and the broken links they contain.

Broken internal links can be found in Google webmaster tools reports sections

Does anyone know of a tool that can check my client sites for links on a schedule and automatically send a report via email? I've used the Link Defender option from WebPosition in the past, but my ISP has broken it by turning off SMTP support for port 25. I'm seeking a replacement product.
