I would love to have the ability to generate a list of links that are active in my hubs when I am editing. I need to see if the links are to relevant sites and most recently I have a construction hub with sources and I have removed a number of links but have not yet removed the malicious link.
With the Google scrutiny of links, being able to quickly analyze the links we are supporting and promoting would be most helpful as we seek to better serve the reader and the Google gods of traffic.
That's a helpful suggestion, CelebrateUSA! I'll see if we might be able to add it to the Hub Metrics box in each Hub, where we presently list things like word count. I'll keep you posted as to whether or not it will be feasible for us to do so and whether we have the bandwidth to do it soon.
Thanks for bringing this up!
Good idea. I've seen cases where people have quickly highlighted a link, broken it, but a single dot or letter has remained a link, then they've spent ages trying to figure out where the bad link is when they can't see any!
Hey again CelebrateUSA! When I brought this up in our community meeting, the team pointed out that by clicking on the malware link warning on your Hub, you can see the domain that prompted the warning. This means that by clicking through to the links you've included in your Hub, you should be able to find it pretty quickly. I hope that helps!!

We've realized for a while that with our existing tools it can be very time consuming to manage links across a large portfolio of hubs. Many Hubbers have tried to handle the interconnecting of related hubs using...

OK I know a lot about links, but somehow I can't make a damn link to turn into a live hyperlink in Yahoo answers! I've done it both ways; just typing in the plain URL, and also using the full a href= code.None of them...

If I create a list of links in a Hub, I get a warning about having a lot of links in one place.I can't see any valid reason for that warning, and it's causing confusion for Squidoo members, who are deleting lists of...
