Broken Links

Broken Link - SEO Glossary

Broken links (Link rot) are links to webpages that no longer exist. They may be due to the website being moved, or due to it being renamed or shut down.

There are two types of broken links:

  • Broken internal links, which are links between pages on your site that don’t work and are marked as such by the browser or search engine.
  • Broken external links, which are links to other websites that don’t work because they have changed their domain name or have moved their website to a new address.
