Wrote this a while ago, cleaning up links. Clean links are a very important maintenance feature if you are building up your blog.
So after spending most of my spare time this past weekend, repairing any links on my web site that pointed at it’s old Blogspot address, I am now attempting to tackle all of the rest of the broken links on Canadian Personal Finance Place, and it is turning out to be another behemoth of a task.
Using the WordPress Broken Link Plug In, I found that along with the hundreds of links to my old web site I had over 160 broken links on my site pointing to various non-existant sites or posts on the Web, Oh Joy!
The interface for the Plug In is very straight forward, so that is good, but I am also cleaning up the postings as well (deleting some posts, that I must have written while asleep, or when I was in a particularly lazy mood, that is for sure). You can simply discard the bad link and that speeds things up a lot, but I have many images that I have linked to that are no longer there, which I want to clean up (the post looks stupid without them).
This site only has 1 broken link, so that is kind of cool too.
