I have broken link error message on this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Where-to-Find-P … -The-World
I have tested this link and it works fine. I even redid it a few days ago, but the error message is still there. Any ideas what more I can do, other than remove the link?
Is the error message still on the page in edit form? I had two, and they disappeared from top of page. I don't think you have to remove the link if it tests ok. On the stats page, is it still there under broken links?
I know you've retested the link several times, but can you hit "retest" again? I reviewed the link in question and determined that it is in fact working. I modified something on our end that should hopefully remove the "broken link" designation. Let me know if that does the trick.
psychskinner and brakel2, thanks for your replies.
Hi Camille, thanks for your reply and for trying to fix this. I have tested it again and it still came up showing “Link bad.” (I tried in Firefox and in Safari just in case that made a difference. But no.)
Sorry that didn't work. I'd recommend hitting "ignore" for now while we look into it. Rest assured, your Hub is not at risk of being unpublished due to the link!
Thanks Camille. I was wondering if I should just remove the link, to save any more bother?
I'm having the same problem. It's one hub of mine and there are two links that are "broken". I've hit retest, redid the links, etc. and it still shows it's broken. Should I just ignore it?
Yes, you can go ahead and ignore it. The domains are rechecked periodically, so the warning will likely go away on its own.

The page hubpages.com/learningcenter/Subdomain-Sudden-loss-of-Traffic has a broken link. The link in question is about 'Doorway pages' referring to some Google help page.
