When did you last check your site for broken links ?

When did you last check your site for broken links ?

I have been looking at Parish Council websites supplied by some of our competitors. I must say that I have been shocked by the large number of Parish Council websites that have broken web links on them (I counted 185 broken links on one site). This gives your customers a very poor experience of your website and makes your council appear unprofessional.

Websites provided by 2commune have an automated 'link checker' this produces an easy to follow report detailing any links on your website that are broken. Making frequent use of this feature ensures that you are not frustrating your customers by providing them with broken links giving a 'page not found' error.
