We’ve added external link status checking as a follow up to our recent follow/nofollow update to SiteCondor’s External Links section.
This means SiteCondor now follows all external links found during a crawl, checks their status codes, and reports them appropriately under the Resources section. If the external resource is successfully fetched (2xx HTTP status code), it will be listed under the Resources » All tab, as shown in the screenshot below.
Otherwise, depending on the nature of the error, the Resource will be listed under the 404, Redirects, or Other Errors tabs.
You can use this improvement to check (and monitor) your site for broken links, but also for other purposes such as broken link building.
As usual, we hope you’ll like this improvement – let us know what you think!
