A little sybol has appeared on one of my hubs saying broken links. Do I have to fix this?
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Visit the hub, click the links one by one, and remove or edit the one that is no longer valid.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.
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?
Thanks for reply Izzy. I only have a few youtube videos on my hubs but I was planning to do more.You must have your work cut out with so many hubs.
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?

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?

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?
