I took it upon myself to earn a little karma by using the suggested links tool for the first hub I created. I then went to my account and noticed that my hub was reporting broken links. I took a look and discovered that the broken links were a few of the links added to the hub from the suggested link tool. Is this normal? Doesn't seem very helpful.
i haven't had this issue with broken links, and i use the suggested link tool quite a bit. it might help to try the link out before adding it to your page - that is what i usually do. plus, i like to take a peak at what i'm linking to before i actually link to it. sometimes the suggestions aren't really appropriate. hope this helps! blessings!
Thanks for the reply. I guess this is what I'll have to do. I was trusting the little pop-up that displayed the content, but I guess I'll have to go to the page and check every time.
It's possible that the hub was unpublished, but I haven't seen the linking tool add broken links. I just tested a few links and it seems like it's working.

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?

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

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...
