Can anybody help me? I got a broken link notice( the little black triangle with an exclamaton point in it) on my hub about the Icelandic Christmas Lads awhile ago. First I checked all the links, then I removed all the links I have now removed every link in that hub and every picture, plus I removed the old video and substituted a new one -- there are no pictures and no imbedded links in the hub now and STILL the broken link message is there. WTF?????? What could the problem be???? Here's a link to the hub
http://robie2.hubpages.com/hub/Christma … in-Iceland
Should I delete the hub or what. I don't know what else to do
thanks for any suggestions in advance
Maybe you can wait and check again afterwards. You have only one video left in that hub and since it is not broken, maybe there is just a glitch. Don't delete the hub.
well, I've been waiting for a week and nothing has changed, so I think whatever the glitch is, time won't fix it. I've sent an email to the team at Hubpages and am hoping that somebody will take a look there, but thanks anyway for the suggestion. I'm only going to delete it as a last resort
This happened to me many times. I think it could be that the link opens up slowly from the URLs server even if it is a good link.
The support email you sent is the best way to get it fixed although when I did that it occurred again a couple times later. So far, no new glitches anymore
How I fix this issue.
In my account on the left there is an option to test for broken links, do this, it will give you an opportunity to retest the broken link. Once that is done your worries are over.

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 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?

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

"A potentially broken link has been detected in this Hub."Has anyone else had this flag and after checking the links, there was nothing wrong?

I am curious what you think about people that post links to their other sites (hubpages or others)?I have been getting lots of comments but that have links to my hubs, and it seems they are trying to promote their stuff on my pages. I am curious what you think about this and others as well....
