Me too and yes, it's a cool and nifty feature
And guess who's fault it was?
Yup ... BC
Closed his account and left me with a broken link. Men
I've had a couple of broken links in the last couple of weeks, mainly due to youtube withdrawing video for copyright infringements.
The broken links feature here has saved me maintenance time on the two hubs that were involved.
The broken link notification is working very well. I was notified today that a link from one of my Hubs was no longer active. I fixed it in about 10 seconds. Thank you HP for this algorithm that looks for broken links in Hubs.
How are you notified? Just look at your "my account" tab for listings with a black triangle with an exclamation point in the middle of it, then click Broken Links under YOUR HUBS.
Same I love that feature. Just a pain to have to go find a new one lol
I love the feature too! Sometimes I delete the link and sometimes I search for a replacement, but it sure is nice to know there is a problem.
The more 'content and richness' the more problems arise. Good to know that hubpages have the link thing covered. I have been informed a couple of times about broken links.. x
I have never had a broken link since i started on hubpages. That feature is wonderful, how i wish i can have it in my blog

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 have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else...
