Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know what we do about dead links. He asks…
When you come across dead links, either in your existing posts or in comments on your blog, do you try to fix or delete them, or do you just let them be, and why?
I rarely look back at my old posts except when I’m hunting for one to use for my Flashback Friday posts. If I happen to find a dead link, be it a YouTube video or a link to an article or to another post, I’ll try to fix it if I can. But if whatever it is I was linking to is no longer available, I’ll typically just remove the link.
If someone comments on one of my posts and has a link in their comment that is invalid, I’ll just let it be, since I didn’t originate the link, the commenter did.
