Grosse Hilfe
By , for WP 3.6.1

Dieses Plugin garantiert, dass ausgehende Links funktionieren. Ich lasse mir fehlerhafte Links per Mail mitteilen. Innerhalb von Stunden kann ich einen toten Link aktualisieren. Das Interface ist sehr einfach und intuitiv zu bedienen Perfekt.

Quick way to see what's not working
By , for WP 3.6.1

Even for small sites this is very valuable plugin! Google is seems more alert on broken links and this way you are SEO proof.
Thanks

Severe performance issues
By , for WP 3.6.1

Good idea, but poorly implemented. It hits the CPU hard, makes the site very slow, which makes this plugin basically unusable.

Takes me so long to install...
By , for WP 3.6.1

I just installed the plugin...although I have known the plugin a few months back. Then, I forgot and simply go through manual and tedious way of checking broken links within my websites. Now, this looks automatic and I'll just simply check from time to time if there are broken links detected to double check.

Great job on this one... keep it up!

...and Thank You!

Great - keeps getting better

Been using this for a long time, had to post a review after seeing the new features in version 1.9!

Great plugin. Sniffs out links that are broken very reliably!

The best - indispensable!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This is one of the best plugins I have ever used, and I put it on all my sites. It is hard enough to build quality content with link variation, however when those links disappear it is worse than having no link at all if your visitors are sent to a deadend!!

Here is an example of one of my sites where I have used this plugin extensively. With art being an ever changing industry, it was important for a site on chalk ink that the links are always valid and the site is operating properly. Highly recommended A+++

Security hole for our site
By ,

Our site kept getting hacked, even after extensive cleanup. Our hosting company finally got involved and said that a malicious IP was "accessing a file in the broken link finder plugin."

I'm not saying this plugin was the security hole. But in our case it looks like it was more useful to the hackers than to us.
