I have a broken link warning on one of my hubs. It is highlighted within the hub but, as far as I can see, it isn't broken. I have re-inserted it and re-published several times but it's still showing as broken. Any suggestions?
In its published state, you can still access the link (with a warning) even though it is crossed through, and it does work.
I've had the same problem on one of my Hubs for a long time now. Hoping we can fix this problem. The link that is tagged as broken is not only a good link but links to a very good academic article that is kind of crucial to my Hub. I'm especially concerned about this because I think the Hub might be a candidate for a niche site and I'd hate for the link to get edited out at some point; I've left the link on the Hub because it is a very valid and important link.
Maybe is it possible that the link you're using is redirecting? If so, it may be failing the "good link" test for that reason.
Do a Google search for "301 redirect checker" and test your link with one of those tools.

Can anyone tell me what is a broken link, and how do you fix it?

We need an indication of what link is causing this error.Either that, or a list of sites that are prohibited. Expecting us to go through every link HOPING that we find the offending link is a waste of our time.This kind of message is not helpful."This hub contains prohibited promotional links,...

I'm seeing a message saying that I have a broken link in one of my Hubs. When I click on the "broken" link, it correctly brings me to the page the link points to. That tells me that it's not really broken. In the Hub itself, the link appears with a line through the whole thing crossing it...

If updating a hub that is featured, say your best hub, a Hub-of-the-Day hub, a contest winner, or such, puts it into a no-index state until it's reviewed again, why would one want to ever update it?I have such a hub that has an almost constant broken link symbol. Every time I've checked the link in...
