For a couple of weeks now, when I go into my account, one of my hubs is showing a broken link. However, every time I go into it, there's nothing highlighted, nor is there a cross-thru on a link when I'm not in edit mode. I was thinking this is an HP glitch, but too much time has gone by now for that to be the case.
Or is it a glitch-in-reverse? What I mean by that is, has my hub been marked incorrectly?
Has anyone else run into this problem?
Will an HP moderator please come in and help me out?
The broken link could be an Amazon Ad or an image. Look below each of your images to see if there is one which has blue writing underneath.
Thanx for being so quick to respond, Matthew. I'll test the links myself and see what is failing.
Will this glitch be remedied soon? I don't check my account page daily, but when I do, I try to address any issues at hand.
Nope. If it says broken link, I can always find where the problem is and change it to another link that works. If not, I may need to review all the links and see which doesn't work
Test all of your links to see if they are working. I know when you do a text link, and leave on / or omit one thing of the url, it makes it a broken link. I have done this a few times.
Linda, I'll try that. I don't have any links in the text - just photos. This is the second chapter of a novel I was posting, so I didn't have any of my own photos to post (which I try to do whenever possible).
Thanx for the reminder. I should have thought of that myself.
I forgot how it works here. But if a Amazon product is no longer available or ASIN has changed, it affects the link as well, because there will be a new link for ASIN and when some merchants don't have product listed at all anymore,, the link will be broken as well.
If you can give us the title of your hub, Shauna, I'd be happy to take a look and try to help track it down. Just waiting on a phone call here, so have a bit of time on my hands...
Thanx, flycatcherrr. It's The Gifts of Faith - The Rainbow (Ch. II) Here's the link: http://bravewarrior.hubpages.com/hub/Th … nbow-Ch-II
Any help you can give me will be much appreciated. I always fix errors when they're shown in my account. I've not been able to make this one go away and I'm befuddled over it.
I'm on it... will get back to you shortly.
... OK, try putting www in front of the URL link to fotor.com and see if that helps?
It's technically not a broken link (200 not 404 error) but I'm just not seeing anything else (yet).
Flycatcherrr, Matthew responded and told me what to check. I've fixed the link and the warning's gone. Thanx for wanting to help!
Since I moved my hubs to my own sites, and another platform, I don't have anymore bugs, quirks, etc. Once in awhile an Amazon product is changed or pulled.
Linda, I would venture to say that none of our own sites, mine included, receive the ranking and/or traffic that HubPages gives us. The changes may be a pain in the ass - and they are - but it's the nature of the Internet. If you want to succeed, you have to play by the rules. It's as simple as that. HP is trying to give each of us the biggest advantage they can. In order to do so, they have to comply with Google rules.
Go ahead and Google yourself. What comes up first (outside of G+ and Twitter)?
I know that when I Google Faith Reaper, I am at the top but Twitter and the rest follow down. I don't have a site of my own so nothing to compare it to ... as far as the broken links go, I am glad you figured it out. Here lately when they say I have a broken link, it never shows up on the hub under edit mode, but if I go under my account under broken links it is there highlighted in pink.
bravewarrior: My views have gone from maybe 200 a month for over 70 hubs, to a lot less than that on each site, which avgs 200 views a day. Both of my new sites just using keywords for site themselves, are first page of Google search. My sales are up. No bugs. I control my site. I don't have to play the guessing game.

Do I need to do something to fix a broken link?
by Liz Elias 7 years ago
Ok, this keeps happening to me. Well, two things with broken links. Both are annoying.1) There is a broken link warning; I go to edit the hub and fix or delete said link, and the broken link warning does not go away. I then re-check the entire hub, to make sure there was not more...

Two of my articles on PetHelpful are showing as having broken links. In the first instance, when I look at the article, the link is a picture. This link http://www.sxc.hu/photo/679862 is showing as broken but is in fact clearly showing as a black cat drinking so I think this may be a 'glitch'? In...
