What are BROKEN LINKS on hubs?
This morning when I logged in, I saw two of my hubs with broken links (those broken links are my other related hubs which were mentioned in those two hubs).
My question is this, though I have made some changes in those hubs (which acted as broken links) but the URL etc obviously remained unchanged. I did some changes for optimization and keyword purposes, so how come they became a broken link? And do they affect anything? Please assist about the issue.
The link you have on your hub no longer works- Broken links will not allow anyone to see the page or video you're trying to share- so find another link and replace it with a working one.
Sometimes when we share links for videos, or other web pages they stop working because they no longer exist.
So do you have some links to other web sites or links to videos on your page that are highlighted yellow? You have to have at least one- the warning at the top will let you know how many.
The ones highlighted in yellow when you're editing your page should be fixed/replaced with a working link or erased. Remember they will only be highlighted yellow when you are editing that page.
I have had music video links go bad- so I find the same exact song and put the new link in its place to replace it.
I hope I have helped you Hunbbel Meer!
God bless you!
Thanks for your much needed help. I really appreciate it.
But actually, those 'broken' links are also my original hubs.
I'll give you an example to make myself clear:
I wrote Hamlet's First soliloquy - (This hub is ok)
in this hub I referred a link of Hamlet's Second Soliloquy (which is also written by me and is published on hubpages)
but now that 2nd soliloquy's link is showing as a broken link in the 1st soliloquy's hub.
But as per my knowledge, I can read/open both these hubs perfectly, all I see is a broken link mark.
And everything was perfectly ok till last night.
Any assistance on this please?
If you visit the Report a problem thread on the forum you will see that a lot of people are having this problem right now. It is a site glitch.

Have you had this happen to you? I searched for the highlighted broken link but I could not find one. So how do you clear the notice?

Matthew, I got a broken link icon for this hub. When I put it in edit mode, nothing is highlighted. I deleted one pic I thought it might be and two promotional comments with a website.com. It's still saying that the broken link is there but I can't find it. Please check,...

I just found a (!) warning on one of my Hubs, due to two broken links to my own Hubs. Clicking on the links led to 404 error pages. But the pages the links were supposed to go to still exist, and are still published and featured. It seems the links should have been good.I went into the Hub and...

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...
