Broken Link Detector icon Check any website for broken links with the help of this lightweight software utility that enables you to export your reports for further analysis

It is common knowledge that broken links negatively impact your website since not only is the user experience spoiled, but your overall ranking is damaged, with search engines not indexing your page.

Fortunately, there are software utilities helping you prevent such an unpleasant scenario, with Broken Link Detector being one of them.

Can scan your website for broken links

First off, you should know that, even though the application cannot actually correct the issues it identifies, it can inform you of any malfunctions on your website, which should be more than enough since the most difficult step is becoming aware of said problems.

Once you have installed the program on your computer, which you should know is a hassle-free process, you are welcomed by a clean user interface anyone could figure out in a matter of seconds.

At the top of the main window, you can paste the URL you want the tool to analyze, with the possibility of stopping the scan at any point by resorting to a dedicated button. By default, the app does not provide you with extra options, aside from letting you choose precisely what you want it to scan.

Comes with hideable extra options

To be more specific, the app can check the domain name only, strictly the subdomain name, or all domain names, with the possibility of carrying our a recursive URL scan as well.

On the other hand, if you are an advanced user, you may want to take a glimpse of the aforementioned extra options so that you can manage the connection and response timeout, the agent, the ignored extensions as well as ignored URLs.

Regardless of the route you decide to take, you are provided with the scan results in real time, with each URL being assigned a status so that you know when a broken link must be dealt with.

At the end of the analysis, the application enables you to create and export reports so that you can subsequently easily address all issues at once.

Improve your website’s ranking by ditching broken links

On an ending note, Broken Link Detector is a lightweight but capable piece of software that could prove of great help in site administration tasks. The program can scan your website for broken links, letting you adjust several parameters of the entire process so that you can eventually create and export reports for further analysis.
