    The fastest and most accurate broken link checker for WordPress. Join over 700K people who use Broken Link Checker to monitor and detect broken links 20x faster than other plugins, with pinpoint accuracy. No page limits, no ads, no upsells. Enjoy effortless, unlimited, and automated broken link checking from the get-go.

    Broken links can kill your SEO, user experience, and site health… Broken Link Checker helps you find and resolve them faster than similar plugins.

    Finding and staying on top of broken links can feel like a never-ending battle, especially if you’re dealing with large sites or managing multiple.

    Using a link checking tool can save you from having to find links manually, or avoid the frustration of discovering missed broken links months later (oops!).

    But not every broken link checker was created equal…

    You need a tool that not only automates the process, but also detects broken links quickly, thoroughly, and accurately.

    That’s where Broken Link Checker comes in…

    BLC doesn’t just scan your sites faster than other solutions, it scans deeply and frequently to ensure no broken links are missed.

    Scan every inch of your sites, including external and internal links within your posts, pages, comments, blogroll, even custom fields.

    It’ll also detect missing images and redirects, helping to ensure your site’s SEO and user experience are not compromised in any way. And if that isn’t enough, you’ll also receive detection reports via email so you can quickly take corrective action.

    Choose from two different link checking engines:

    Broken Link Checker gives you the option of using two unique engines based on your needs. You can also easily switch between local and cloud broken link checking without losing your saved settings.

    1.Cloud-based link checker

    This engine is 100% cloud-based and built directly on WPMU DEV’s servers (the owners of BLC), harnessing their powerful API.

    Note that our cloud-based engine is still in beta. We’re working around the clock to make this new version even better. As mentioned, if it’s missing a feature you need, simply switch back to the local version.

    This cloud-based engine gives you several advantages, including:

    • 20x more speed – Being cloud-based eliminates any dependence on the performance of your server, giving you a massive speed increase.

    • Unlimited page & URL checker – Enjoy limitless scanning for pages and URLs, ideal if you’re working with multiple sites or large sites with a lot of content.

    • Edit/unlink broken links (coming soon) – Effortlessly resolve all detected links right from your BLC dashboard.

    • Crawl it all – Standard pages and posts, menus, category pages… BLC ensures no URL is missed.

    • Any site, any size – Unlike plugin-based solutions, BLC is server-independent, making it capable of checking sites of any size and type.

    • Fewer errors – BLC’s cloud-based nature eliminates the occurrence of WP Errors, Fatal Errors, DB Errors, and PHP Errors often present with other plugins.

    • Less chance of being blocked – The cloud-based engine doesn’t use your site’s IP address to check external URLs, meaning you’re less likely to be blocked due to frequent requests.

    Plus, manage broken links for unlimited sites from one place

    Since the cloud-based engine connects you to WPMU DEV, you have the luxury of free access to their suite of powerful web development tools – including a convenient site management interface where you can manage broken links on multiple sites, rather than just one.

    2. Local link checker

    The main difference of our local link checker compared to the cloud engine, is that it uses your site/server resources to fetch and analyze site content and check the status of links.

    It also uses your site’s IP address, which as mentioned above, increases your risk of being blocked by some external links, resulting in incomplete or inaccurate scan results.

    Here are the standout features of the local link checking engine:

    • Monitors external links and internal links in your posts, pages, comments, the blogroll, and custom fields (optional).
    • Detects broken links, missing images, and redirects.
    • Receive notifications via your dashboard or email.
    • Make broken links display differently in posts (optional).
    • Prevent search engines from following broken links (optional).
    • Search and filter links by URL, anchor text and more.
    • Edit links directly from your interface, without manually updating each post.

    Whether you choose local or cloud-based, BLC’s user-friendly dashboard and powerful features makes staying on top of broken links as easy and automated as possible.

    The best scanning & detection features on one dashboard:

    Run manual scans or set an automatic schedule

    Enjoy the flexibility to run scans manually, or schedule automatic daily, weekly, and monthly scans to suit your preference and the sites you manage.

    Edit or unlink broken links (coming soon to cloud-based)

    After BLC detects broken links, it gives you the option to edit or unlink them with a click from your main dashboard. It couldn’t be easier or faster.

    Detailed broken link reports

    After each scan you get a comprehensive summary of any broken links detected, along with the status of the links so you can instantly know how to resolve the issue.

    Detection notifications via email

    Stay on top of your link health and fix issues as fast as possible with broken link reports sent straight to an email address of your choice.

    Advanced search filtering

    BLC’s search and filtering tools make it faster and easier to find specific URLs or filter by status or error type.

    Export report lists for further analysis

    Export your broken link lists as a CSV file for greater analysis inside of Google Sheets, Microsoft Excel, and other spreadsheet/data software.
