Broken Links Frustrating

    Can someone please guide me? I have been trying to clean up broken links, republishing some of my articles, fixing broken video links, unlinking links to websites and photos where the link has broken.

    I am starting to never link unless I have control of the article or if it is in the link section simply for buying resource and then I will not give a web page - simply the main website.

    I have fixed literally dozens of links. Can someone please guide me when links help, when they hinder and how important is it to fix the broken link?

    I want the presentation to my readers to be pristine. I simply do not understand why one day a link works, then it works for months, then it is broken. The only links I understand are the video links-those clearly say why the video is no longer available.

    I think there should some sort of appreciation reward for linking to related sites lol but I try to stick to 'authority' sites for links to act more as 'supporting facts' rather than just sending our audience away hmm I've had a few broken links also and yes, usually a YT video tongue but is best to keep an eye on your site over all smile

    Static webpages, news media sites, sites owned by large companies or university etc, these are less likely to change.
