Support » Plugin: Auto Affiliate Links » How to check/remove broken links?

  • Over the last 5 years my affiliate link database has grown and many of those products are no longer active. Think products removed from Amazon.

    Is there any tool or easy way to validate all the links in the DB? I can run a Broken Link Checker across the posts & pages, but not every link entered was used in a post necessarily.

    How can I clean up my list?

    Hello.

    Thank you for reporting this issue. So, to be sure I understand your issue: you added many links but some of them are not working anymore, and you want a way to automatically identify which affiliate links added to Auto Affiliate Links are not working anymore ?

    Ideally, yes, that’s it exactly. I have 900 links over the last 5 or 6 years. Obviously that slows things down a bit.

    Hello. I have added an option to check links individually. The button will showup after you click -show advanced options-.

    Outstanding! This is super useful for a small number of links. To clean 900 this way will take a long time but it’s a start!

    I can extend it to work for more links at once, but before I do it I want feedback for the options as it is right now. I want to know how accurate it is. I am also looking for ways to improve it. When I know it works as expected, I can put a button to check all links at once.
