Article Diagnostic Center: Link Emergency Care

Emergency Care for Your Articles’ Links

It’s important your links are working properly to ensure a good user experience. After all, if you tell a reader to click on a link in your Resource Box and they land on a 404 error or worse, they will not politely inform you that your link isn’t working. Instead, due to their frustration, they will simply leave.

All of the links in your published articles are tested daily to ensure they’re responding properly and don’t contain dangerous malware. If a link is flagged in our system two days in a row because it’s either broken or unsafe, it will be displayed in the Article Diagnostic Center of your account. You will also receive an email notifying you to resolve the issue ASAP. If links in the Article Diagnostic Center are not addressed in a timely manner, they will be deactivated in order to maintain a good user experience.

Here’s a problematic link drill to guide you around your Article Diagnostic Center should you ever need it or if you find yourself in need of link emergency care today:
