Reasons for broken links to occur


Recommended Posts

Reasons for broken links to occur:
1. The website owner entered the incorrect URL
2. The URL structure of your site recently changed without a redirect and it’s causing a 404 error.
3. The external site is no longer available, is offline, or has been permanently moved.
4. Links to content (PDF, Google Doc, video, etc.) that has been moved or deleted.
5. Broken elements within the page (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, or CMS plugins interference).
6. Firewall or geolocation restriction does not allow outside access.
