I keep getting messages on several of my articles about broken links. I go in and remove them, but in some articles, they immediately pop back up! What can I do? How does this affect my traffic??
What do you mean, "remove them"?
You need to edit your Hub, open the capsule where the broken link is, highlight the link and either break it (the little broken link icon) or correct it. Then save and "done editing".
Is that what you're doing?
Yep, that's what I'm doing. That has worked for most of the articles - but not for all.
That's mysterious. So it looks OK (i.e. it's no longer blue) when you save the text capsule? And you're remembering to click "Done Editing" when you're finished? (I know that sounds like a dumb question but I know I've done it in the past...).
The only thing I can suggest is to email the team at HubPages, it sounds like some kind of glitch.
