Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » It's really good for basic linking. But advanced sites will throw this pluigin.

  • When it comes to linking to another website and it throws a 404 error. It generally finds it for me within 24 hour time. It’s fast and efficient that way. which on 80-90 percent of the websites out there this is perfectly find.

    However to give an example when a YouTube video is pulled due to content ID or pulled by the author YouTube still gives an 202 OK which makes the plugin think the link is still valid. There’s a few other sites that will report a false positive such as linking to Microsoft where instead of giving a 404 it will redirect you to its search system which has tripped me up a few times sharing links for drivers on my blog.

    So, it’s a GOOD plugin. You have have to watch it when linking to the bigger social network sites.
