Publisher's Description:

Free Link Checker - Free Link Checker is a desktop freeware tool that does broken link check. You specify a starting URL for checking and the link validator software finds dead links, invalid HTTP redirects and other problems on a website or a single web page. A broken link report is provided after validation. The search for broken links may be recursive, thus validating the whole web site for obsolete and dead HTML links.

The program includes HTML links spider and broken link analyzer. Free Link Checker provides various settings for broken link check, displaying invalid links report, tracking progress, setting up authentication (username and password) and proxy. It is possible to analyse links from the selected domain only, get only a summary of broken links, or receive a full report on dead or obsolete URLs (originating from a href, img, etc. HTML tags), invalid HTTP redirects, directory redirects, forbidden links, etc.

Try Free Link Checker -- a simple but powerful FREE broken link tool for a web site!

Also tried out the XENU's Link Sleuth application, which has a better look and is faster.
The output of this Free Link Checker is more verbose. Actually prefer tabular format like the one in Xenu's

I am experiencing difficulties accessing Gmail and I used your tool to try to identify and resolve the problem. The answer I received was: "error 404- the link does not exist". In other words I am at exactly the same point I was before downloading your program.

Reporting is indeterminate

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to produce a report that was useful. Even after setting various reporting options regarding recursion and levels of nesting, the output was a simple one or two liner suggesting a broken link, but no details or URL for the broken link.

The only problem that I ran into was that I couldn't print the report to see where the problems were. The whole idea behind checking the links is to know what needs to be fixed.....

Author's Response:
The problems are highlighted in the report. Also, you may set on option to display only problems. Otherwise, I don't see a reason why you want to print a 100-page report. Save paper - go green.

Great but didn't tell me where the dead link.

Ok but wouldn't tell me where the dead links were coming from internally in my site so was no use to me - that was why I used it.

Best Free Link Checker

Thank you so much for making your link checker a freeware tool. It is comprehensive and easy to use, and I really appreciate that it is a tool I can have on my desktop as opposed to the w3c checker that is very similar, but in a browser window.

I use the link checker to search for broken links on hospital web sites. Since serving patients and those with healthcare needs, as well as healthcare providers (doctors, nurses, technicians), is a priority for our web sites, we needed a tool to ensure optimum accessibility on our sites. Also, our health care system is non-profit and on a very tight budget which enables us to provide healthcare for many individuals who cannot pay for their services. Therefore, it was highly important that this tool be low cost or freeware. We used Watchfire's Linkbot when it was low cost, but had to drop the service because of their new, exorbitant pricing.

If you decide to make enhancements at some point, my only suggestions would be to created a final summary page showing only the found issues, i.e. 404 broken links, or colorize the broken links in the output for easier finding after the report is finished.

Thanks again for your excellent and free Link Checker!
