    It says the hub has a broken link and there isn't one highlighted. After I tried all the links, I couldn't find one that didn't work. This is the hub barbara-kay.hubpages.com/hub/Free-Filet-Crochet-Patterns

      I double checked your account and the system is working as designed.

      Please check the broken links page that @paradigmsearch mentioned.
      http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/broken-links

      On it you will find the broken link that is for a YouTube video that is unpublished.

        That seems to be happening more frequently these days.

    Tell it to retest. http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/broken-links Then forget about it.

    If all links are good but the retest says no, then you might just as well click ignore and everything will be fine. big_smile

      In vast majority of the time the broken link indicator is accurate.
      You should try to remove any broken links.

      Only click "ignore" when you are sure that is is not broken.

      A good practice is to check the HTTP code returned for the URL as well.

      Here is one such tool you can use.

    Barbara,
    When I tried the video it said, "This video does not exist." Perhaps that is the link.

      Examiner-1, Thank you. That was it and I didn't even think to check the video.

        That often is because YouTube videos "die out", or sometimes they leave a message that to see it you must watch from YouTube itself. So again the link on HubPages seems broken because they do not allow you to watch it from there.

        I've had the same experience.  Next time you'll remember to check the video!
