For a couple of weeks now, when I go into my account, one of my hubs is showing a broken link. However, every time I go into it, there's nothing highlighted, nor is there a cross-thru on a link when I'm not in edit mode. I was thinking this is an HP glitch, but too much time has gone by now for that to be the case.
Or is it a glitch-in-reverse? What I mean by that is, has my hub been marked incorrectly?
Has anyone else run into this problem?
Will an HP moderator please come in and help me out?
There is a known issue with some broken links not being highlighted. It affects the optional photo source (URL) field in photo capsules. You can find more information in this thread. http://hubpages.com/forum/post/2713316
Linda, I'll try that. I don't have any links in the text - just photos. This is the second chapter of a novel I was posting, so I didn't have any of my own photos to post (which I try to do whenever possible).
Thanx for the reminder. I should have thought of that myself.
I forgot how it works here. But if a Amazon product is no longer available or ASIN has changed, it affects the link as well, because there will be a new link for ASIN and when some merchants don't have product listed at all anymore,, the link will be broken as well.
Linda, I would venture to say that none of our own sites, mine included, receive the ranking and/or traffic that HubPages gives us. The changes may be a pain in the ass - and they are - but it's the nature of the Internet. If you want to succeed, you have to play by the rules. It's as simple as that. HP is trying to give each of us the biggest advantage they can. In order to do so, they have to comply with Google rules.
Go ahead and Google yourself. What comes up first (outside of G+ and Twitter)?
I know that when I Google Faith Reaper, I am at the top but Twitter and the rest follow down. I don't have a site of my own so nothing to compare it to ... as far as the broken links go, I am glad you figured it out. Here lately when they say I have a broken link, it never shows up on the hub under edit mode, but if I go under my account under broken links it is there highlighted in pink.
bravewarrior: My views have gone from maybe 200 a month for over 70 hubs, to a lot less than that on each site, which avgs 200 views a day. Both of my new sites just using keywords for site themselves, are first page of Google search. My sales are up. No bugs. I control my site. I don't have to play the guessing game.
Matthew, I got a broken link icon for this hub. When I put it in edit mode, nothing is highlighted. I deleted one pic I thought it might be and two promotional comments with a website.com. It's still saying that the...

I had a (!) broken links warning this morning on a recently published Hub, but it was not immediately evident why. No highlighted link when I went into edit mode. Are we still supposed to get the highlighted link with...
