Support » Plugin: Broken Link Checker » Plugin makes too many requests to check links

  • 1. Created my personal API key. entered it in the plugin settings.
    2. Started a check today of 873 youtube links via the API.
    3. I found that the plugin spent 5 times more requests!!! 4362 requests were spent from the 10,000 day limit on my key.
    There is an error in the plugin!!! because it takes 5 requests to check 1 link, this is not normal.
    Limits allocated for the API key are wasted!!!
    Please fix this.

    Hello @duddy2007 ,

    Can you tell me how settings from screenshots:
    look like? By changing those settings you can change the number of requests.

    kind regards,

    no, you did not understand
    these settings are not related to the quick check of the total; these settings work against the background in several hours and days. This is not my case, I did not wait for hours !!!
    I created a new API key and immediately launched a recheck of all links totally. The entire check was completed very quickly in 5-7 minutes and the Google limit of checks was spent. It only says that the plugin is not correctly making too many requests to check 1 link! 5 requests for 1 link!
    please check it
