    Thanks Jerlene, I ran that link checker for Business Advice Forum. It flagged up a few links as being broken, however when I checked them, they were working fine.

    I ran this one for one of my sites and it flagged about three links and they were indeed down.

    There are a lot of tools you can use. I'm using Xenu Link Sleuth. The guys over Citation Labs compiled a great list of Broken Link Finder.

    I may use that one. I'm always looking for free webmaster tools. Thanks, cesspadilla.
