Hubpages is giving me an error message saying I have a broken link on one of my hubs. However, I checked the link and it still works and it still takes me to the right website. I 'fixed it' but all I did was delete the old link and put the same link back in. Does anyone know if this will fix the problem and make the broken link message go away?
Or perhaps have I overlooked a reason for the broken link message, such as maybe the website doesn't want people linking to their page? It is the NY Times, though, so I don't see that being an issue.
Currently, I do not see any broken links indicated on the broken links page for your account.
You can see all broken links for your Hubs here.
This page also allows you to re-test any or all of these links.
I have encountered the problem previously. My research has shown that sometimes a site may be down for maintenance or some other reason when our broken link tool checks. If that happens the error will come up. It will usually resolve for me when I "retest" the link.
Retesting broken links appears to not resolve he issue right away. I just took a few broken links off a Hub, and the system doesn't recognize that one of them is gone, and keeps returning a broken link message.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

I just found a (!) warning on one of my Hubs, due to two broken links to my own Hubs. Clicking on the links led to 404 error pages. But the pages the links were supposed to go to still exist, and are still published and...

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?
