How are you getting broken links appearing in your hubs? The only time I have ever seen one is when I am writing a hub and it is linked to another hub that I am writing at the same time that is not yet published.
OMGosh !!!! Yes -- I get really tired of the "broken link" warning. Every time I get that, I go into that hub and delete ALL links that may be in there. Also, with new hubs I no longer add any links.l
Are these external links that are broken? I only ever link to my own hubs, so I guess that is why I never get any
Robbie, these are internal links to other hubs. True, if you link to your own hubs, you will not get a broken link, unless you delete the hub you linked to.
Well, when I see that ! ... I certainly get on it right away and remove such broken links. I do not get many to actually get tired of the broken links. However, I am disappointed when it happens to be a specific video that is just perfect for a particular hub and then I can no longer use it. However, sometimes that is not the case, and one just has to go back and re-enter it. I know when I have linked other hubbers' related hubs to a topic I am writing about and that particular hubber happens to no longer write for HP, then I am glad to know of the broken link so that I may remove it. I try to catch these as soon as the pop in when I get the notification.

I have what appears to be way too many broken links - the links are to my own hubs. Testing the links, I see that the little link thingy on the accounts page seems to be off, as those hubs are still there. Anyone else...

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 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?
