Me too and yes, it's a cool and nifty feature
And guess who's fault it was?
Yup ... BC
Closed his account and left me with a broken link. Men
I've had a couple of broken links in the last couple of weeks, mainly due to youtube withdrawing video for copyright infringements.
The broken links feature here has saved me maintenance time on the two hubs that were involved.
The broken link notification is working very well. I was notified today that a link from one of my Hubs was no longer active. I fixed it in about 10 seconds. Thank you HP for this algorithm that looks for broken links in Hubs.
How are you notified? Just look at your "my account" tab for listings with a black triangle with an exclamation point in the middle of it, then click Broken Links under YOUR HUBS.

I love the feature too! Sometimes I delete the link and sometimes I search for a replacement, but it sure is nice to know there is a problem.

I have never had a broken link since i started on hubpages. That feature is wonderful, how i wish i can have it in my blog

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...

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?

The broken links report showing a broken link in one of my Hubs but when I go to the Hub in edit mode I cannot find any such link. This has happened a few times now. I would post a link to the affected Hubs but don't want to infringe TOS!

This is a great feature HP has...flagging Hubs where links within those Hubs are broken.However, just in the last 20 minutes, four of my Hubs showed on My Account page as having broken links. Only one did. (As in, there was no yellow text when looking at those Hubs in edit mode, for three of...
