    A little sybol has appeared on one of my hubs saying broken links. Do I have to fix this?

      Yes, you should look for the link that is no longer valid and fix it (or remove it).

    You had better. Broken links are a disservice to your visitors. Also, too many broken links could get the hub flagged as substandard.

    Visit the hub, click the links one by one, and remove or edit the one that is no longer valid. Any invalid links will probably produce an error message when trying to open the page. If all links appear to be working, you can disregard the warning.

    In hub edit mode it will be highlighted in yellow. Note which one(s) before going into capsule edit mode. smile

    Thanks everyone I will try and fix it right away.Thanks again just managed to fix it. It was a youtube video so would have irritated readers not able to watch it.

    I've had a few youtube videos with broken links recently. Are youtube doing a clean up, or what?

        Fortunately most of them do not have a youtube video on them! But a fair number do, and I've been getting the broken links warning quite a lot recently.
        That's another great feature of Hubpages though. Imagine if they didn't tell you, how long would it take to find out?
