    Most likely this link is sewn in your theme. You can find it by searching through the theme files.

    Thanks so much for the tip! I will check it out.

    I also found this article:
    Remove These 10 Unnecessary Tags From WordPress Header… Do you think this might be relevant?

    Thanks again and stay healthy!

    This option deletes this link.

    Thanks!! I will check it out.

    Thanks again Artem for your help!

    Rather than add another plugin – I eliminated the code from the Header PHP (on one of my testing sites):

    <link rel=”profile” href=”” pingback”>

    I do not see any difference on the front end. Can you think of any reason why I should not delete this from the Header PHP? Will it have any impact on WP updates? Can it be this simple?

    Thank you!

    This does not affect updates in any way.

    Beautiful! Thank you!!

    We have a similar issue with: XML-RPC.php hyperlink. (xmlrpc.php).
    This shows as “hidden” broken link(s) on all pages.

    Wondering if we need it? I believe it’s in the htaccess folder and how to delete…

    We found this code to hide/block it but it did not seem to work:

    # Block WordPress xmlrpc.php requests
    <Files xmlrpc.php>
    order deny,allow
    deny from all

    Not sure if I should start a new topic but you have been very helpful so I thought I’ad ask you.

    Please let me know if you have any thoughts. Thanks again.

    You can read more about xmlrpc.php in Google search. You probably won’t need this technology, so you can leave it disabled.
