Broken link

    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.

      Thanks Glenn, I'm going to check it.
