One of my articles is marked "broken links". When I check, the link is working fine. Any answers?
When I checked my stats I see one of my articles has the "broken links" symbol. There's only one link in the entire article and it's working fine. How does this even happen? Does someone flag the article? What do I do about it? Here's the article: http://lovesleftovers.hubpages.com/hub/ … er-Removed
I think they're all automatically checked. Usually they're working pretty accurately, but I did have a false-positive on one of mine a couple of days ago. It had the little icon saying there was a broken link, so I clicked on it -- and the broken link report showed up and it said "none found." My guess is that if it doesn't disappear on its own (the system re-checks regularly, so maybe it happened to check at a time when the domain was down temporarily?) then e-mail Hubpages staff with the link and see what's going on.

I have a YouTube video at the bottom of a hub which used to be viewable, but now is not. However, the introductory still picture still shows up and it is very pertinent to the subject. It is of a piece of art that was auctioned at a record breaking price. The question is: is it all right to leave...

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...
