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 I was notified today that a link from one of my Hubs was no longer active.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.
Same I love that feature. Just a pain to have to go find a new one lol
LOL...I just deleted the link. The Hub didn't really need it. But I know what you mean.
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

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?

I noticed today that I've got several broken link icons on a few different hubs. The links go to hubs of mine that are live. I went in earlier today and tested the links and they tested fine but still show as broken. Has anyone experienced this before? If so, what advice do you have on what to do?

I had six hubs showing broken links yesterday. I corrected all of them, but two are still showing the broken link icon. And, the edit date hasn't updated. Anyone else seeing this?
