I find this is the same on all my computers and all my browsers.
It is especially difficult for me to fix my broken links on Hubs because I can barely see the 'yellow' highlight to fix it. On some Hubs I cannot find any yellow-highlight whatsoever, and on others it takes me too much time and effort to locate them. (I have what is called a condition of 'low-vision' in Canada.)
If it were possible to change that high-lite colour to dark red, or bright green or something, it would make it much easier for low-vision persons such as myself to correct their Hubs.
Since every site uses the same 'light yellow' to indicate broken links, I don't expect Hubpages to be able to change it, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
I often get broken links signs in my stats when the links are not broken at all. This happens mostly on video links to Youtube.
Thanks for the suggestion, Woody Marx. The next time we make changes to the My Account Stats page, I'll see what we can do to make this more accessible.
Sue, I sometimes get that same message for YouTube videos. We did investigate that and its an issue on YouTube's side that, for some short period of time, makes our servers think the video is not available. Unfortunately, not something under our control to fix. Better a false positive than no alert at all, I suppose.

It would be useful to have the ability to automatically delete all 'broken links'. While sometimes I like to visit indivudual hubs to check the link, in most cases I simply delete the offending link.....

This issue has been raised many times in the past – but given the 20% drop in traffic it should be rectified urgently (good enough is no longer sufficient (IMO)Links to unrelated pages is something that Panda and Penguin have hit sites for. If an author puts an unrelated link on their page they...

This is a great feature HP has...flagging Hubs where links within those Hubs are broken.However, just in the last 20 minutes, four of my Hubs showed on My Account page as having broken links. Only one did. (As in, there was no yellow text when looking at those Hubs in edit mode, for three of...

A great HP feature is that we're notified on our account page of broken links in hubs (the black triangle with a white exclamation point in the center). It seems there's no such notification about broken links in the hubber profile page.Only today did I realize that two links I had in my profile...
