    Finding Broken Links


    Hi, I work at a small SEO firm, and my boss gave me a rather large list of links we allow to be spidered. Well there are a lot of broken links that lead to 404 pages, and he wants to get rid of each one. The only problem is, this list does not tell you where these pages are being linked from, so it would be near impossible. Does anyone know of any tools or programs, preferably free or inexpensive that could help me find where each broken link is coming from?

    Xenu link Sleuth http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html

    It has been a lifesaver of mine for a long time

    • whiterabbit agrees : I agree Xenu is free and it is awsome AND you can mount it on a server if you need more processing power!

    google webmaster would be right


    by using googe webmasters tools you can find your broken link. in the crawl statistics it shows broken url url in error etc. that would be the best
