Get rid of bad links!

You have just created your personal Web site. It is all shiny and new and you are very proud of it. Naturally, you have put plenty of links to your favorite sites, and those of your friends. Exchanging links is a very good way to get yourself known and to build traffic to your site. But have you considered that these links can change? If you only have a dozen links on your site, you can always check them manually, but what happens if there are a lot more? A word of advice: use a link verification agent!

In general, these agents make it possible to inspect, edit, and check links, to remove broken ones and repair those that have been moved to another address. Some agents also allow you to check for 404 errors within the site, and to verify images, plug-ins, frames or scripts.

Once changes have been detected, you can receive a detailed report in HTML format, to be displayed within the program or printed. You may think that this kind of tool is only useful once a site has been put on line. But there are agents like Linkbot Personal that enable Web site developers to analyze and optimize their site even before it goes live. This particular agent can monitor up to 1000 links and identify more than 50 different problems. Going, going, gone!

Lots of link verification agents to download and try on AgentLand:
