Broken Links Clean Up Crew

Information

Broken Links Clean Up Crew

We need your help with some important housekeeping!

Please help us remove broken links from MyEnglishClub (just like you help us remove Spammers). A broken link is a link that does not work properly. When you click on it, you do not get to a page with content. You see an error message. Search engines do not like to see broken links on websites. 

How to Help

1. Watch for broken links on your own page. Clean up any links that don't work. Simply delete or fix the link (it may contain a typo).

2. If you find a broken link on a page that is not your own, report it in the comments of this group.

a) Share a link to the page that contains the broken link. (Do NOT type or copy the actual broken link. That would create a second broken link on our site.)

b) Share a screenshot of where you found the broken link. This will help moderators find the problem.

3. Avoid using image scraps (thank you / hello/ welcome) that contain hyperlinks to other websites. These links often break over time. Consider using EnglishClub's stickers instead. 

Reminder: Always test your own links when you add a blog post or discussion. After you publish it, always double check your links. Make sure that they work properly.

Here is a screenshot of where it is on the page:

I used to think that it was the fault of my laptop that I could see those broken links!  It was really irritating to see those broken links.  It's good that I didn't push aside my lappy for this misconception.

Hi Robbie. Great question. If you see a link in a comment or page that goes to a page with that error message, please report the source (not the link). The source is the page you clicked from. 

What often happens is that a member wants to share a blog, video, or profile page that is on MyEC. He/she shares a link to it from his own blog or comment. When that content is no longer available, a broken link occurs. (The original source doesn't exist anymore.)

Hi Tara!

Would this screenshot be considered a broken link? Sometimes I encounter this page when checking out members' blogs or videos.

Thanks in advance!

Robbie

Hi Expector, 

Thanks for spotting that! Feel free to point out those errors any time! You can also use this form: Report Error for a typo or problem like that. I have no idea how that happened, but it's fixed now! Thanks a million.

Cheers,

Tara

The link isn't really a so-called broken link, but it leads to another place instead of the one it should lead to.
