Check website links

runs on Windows

The day you set up a new website, you know that all the links work, 'cause you checked them, right? Over time, though, that perfect little site starts to show signs of wear and tear. Links to external pages get broken, as other webmasters change the pages on their sites. You may even make a change or two on your site, rendering links broken and giving your visitors the dreaded "404 Not Found" message that nobody wants to see.

SiteVerify can keep an eye on the links on your site—both internal links between pages and external links to other sites—and let you know their condition. You choose how deeply you want to crawl the site, so you can check only top-level stuff, or go as far down as you want. When it runs, the pretty colors give you the status of your links: blue for good links, red for broken ones, green for valid image files, and black for links that haven't been checked yet. Save your information to text or CSV files, and you can even create an XML sitemap file.

SiteVerify is a free download. It runs under Windows 2000 and later, and requires at least version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

    consider using xenu, also free, and capable of checking either/ or internal/ external links.
