    Broken links I feel are a sign of a poorly maintained website. I just unpublished a number of hubs to revise and republish for a higher quality score. One of the hubs I unpublished was linked on my profile.

    Is there a way for HP to notify us that we have a broken link on our profile page?

    They do a great job on the individual hubs but I feel the profile page is important too.

    What are your thoughts and experiences?

    My one question is WHY would you unpublish a hub and then republish it???

    Doing so means it will likely be de-indexed by Google, resulting in it starting from scratch in the search engines. Not to mention, if any bots copied your content, that copied content will now rank higher than yours if you republish them.
