    A broken link refers to a hyperlink that no longer points to its original destination. This could be for a variety of reasons: the page has been moved, the page has been renamed, etc. Clicking on a broken link will usually return what's called a 404 error page, which is simply an automated message telling the user that the Web server could not locate the Web page that corresponds to the clicked hyperlink.

    Broken links are links that no longer directs to the correct webpage. The 404 error abound in broken links. Fix them deleting the links and then type them again. If not, there could be problem in your website host's or CMS's system. You should contact them to help you correct these errors.

    Broken links are links that lead to pages that do not exist. When clicking on a broken link, the page you land on is called a 404 error page, a standard HTTP response that indicates that the requested URL doesn’t exist.
