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 but I try to stick to 'authority' sites for links to act more as 'supporting facts' rather than just sending our audience away I've had a few broken links also and yes, usually a YT video but is best to keep an eye on your site over all
Static webpages, news media sites, sites owned by large companies or university etc, these are less likely to change.

I've noticed a problem with Amazon text links this morning on two separate Hubs on two of my accounts. The HP link checker is identifying them as bad links, but they are not, at least in the sense that the pages they...
