How to find broken links of any website


#1

Is there any software, browser extension or anything (except WP plugin) to find all 404 error pages at once?


#2

Yup, see this: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/broken-link-checker/nibppfobembgfmejpjaaeocbogeonhch

You can also try this software mate - Screaming Frog (https://www.screamingfrog.co.uk/seo-spider/) :slight_smile:

Thanks for this Chrome extension.

I think the free version of this tool has a restriction of 500 queries. I am actually looking for a free way to find that. Anyway, @Shivansh’s extension seems to work well. Also, I have just got a website called http://www.brokenlinkcheck.com (Just sharing. In case someone doesn’t want to use browser extension).

Thanks for sharing mate, will look into this. :slight_smile:

Here are some awesome sites and tools:

  1. brokenlinkcheck.com
  2. screaming frog
  3. Xenu’s Link Sleuth
  4. deadlinkchecker
  5. Check my links ( chrome plugin )

I am using the same website to find broken links on my site.

To check my site broken links I use Broken Link check Plugin. It automatically tells you which links are broken and you can take the action accordingly through plugin itself!!
