Dead Links


I’ve posted before (Checking For Dead Links) about the free online applications I use for making sure the 7,000 links on my website are current.

I just learned about a new (to me, at least) application called the W3C Link Checker from the Mobile Technology in TAFE blog.  Sue Waters, the blog’s author, says that this is the best link-checker she’s found, and I have to agree with her.

This kind of application is useful to any teacher who has his/her own website with a set of links.

I’ve placed this new dead-link checker on my Teacher’s Page under Verifying Website Links.

  1. Thanks for this, Larry. I will spend much less time checking links this year.

  2. Hi Larry

    I am glad my post on finding dead links has helped you and also pleased that you found it the better option. Apologies for taking so long to thank you for linking to my site but it has been a full on week on work, traveling and finishing of the chocolate blogging challenge.
