Find and Remove Broken Links From Your Blog

Find and Remove Broken Links From Your BlogYou may never like to see signs like “Road Ends Here”, “Dead End” or “Under Construction”, similarly search engines also do hate blogs with links which lead to no-where. So one of the Search Engine Optimization techniques involve removing all the broken or invalid links from your blog.
As it is not easy to find each and every broken link on your blog, so you can rather use this simple tool which can easily scan your blog for broken links:

After checking your blog for the invalid links, simply either edit or remove them.

Other than this tool, there is an other way too. You can sign up at Google Webmaster tools, where you have to submit your blog’s sitemap. Then with frequent updates and reports from Google, you will be shown a list of links on your blog, which no more exists. But these are ONLY those links which are on your own domain. So it is better to use both of the explained methods.

Sometimes due to some glitches in their system , in GWT some of the older links are also shown in the errors list, but they are gradualy removed from the list.
Give me your blog's link and some of the error links…

Bro, my blog – http://www.somchat.tk – had its previous domain name somchat.com changed to current one. Now problem is I have hundreds of links pointing to the old domain. While blogger correctly works with the new domain (my blog is on blogger) unfortunately there still pages that contain the old domain links which I hard coded – like the 'Read More' links, images that were on the old domain host, etc. Can you help me with how I can get this corrected? any tips?

To clear the point I was making earlier, look at the end of the post on this page – http://www.somchat.tk/2010/03/how-to-make-money-with-google-adsense.html – you'll notice a link – made like a signature at the bottom of the post – Every post I made from 2008 to end of 2010 includes this link. There are hundreds of posts just like this one ending with the signature link pointing to the front page of the old domain name. How can all these links be removed at once, or edited in blogger?

Again, my new blog address is http://www.somchat.tk
