Searching, Locating and Fixing all of the possible website or blog broken links is one additional role any webmaster or webpage owner must try as much as possible to do since his role never ends the moment a site is live, has enough contents and that visitors are continuing to access it on a regular basis. Many other functions a webmaster serves to his or her website may include ensuring that a website or blog is submitted to search engines, has all possible and required incoming links from the relevant and other sites, continues to have fresh contents which benefits the users and very many others.

Once the above and all others are done, now its high time the website owner thought about managing and ensuring that all website links are intact other than having them broken due to the fact that broken links has many negative impacts on any webpage for example they can stop not only search engine crawlers and bots from accessing such pages but too humans since many hate landing on pages hoping to find the contents they are looking for only to find a 404 error page and sometimes not even designed to help the user find what he or she may be looking for.
