Ending the Frustration of Broken Links on the Internet

Share Article

New real time, interactive link monitoring tool from Scotland makes clicking through to page not found errors a thing of the past.

SiliconGlen.com Ltd launches innovative new broken link prevention software for Webmasters. The Broken Link Preventer tests the destination of every link on a website in real time and only allows the destination of the link to be accessed if it will succeed. This puts an end to websites linking to empty content.

The Broken Link Preventer shows a friendly page explaining the problem if the link is broken and offering helpful alternatives to the customer.

Unlike conventional link checkers, the Broken Link Preventer does not require a Webmaster to modify the destination of a link for a customer to receive useful content. The Broken Link Preventer also gathers statistics in real time to indicate which links are no longer linking to active content and how often these links are being accessed. Finally the Broken Link Preventer allows information to be gathered in real time as to where customers go after leaving a company's web site.

The tool, which is installed on the server running the website, does not require cookies, works on all major browsers and server platforms and does not load the server or interfere with existing web statistics. It does not require any content management software.
