Linking

When a link to an external resource is not working, two things happen. Readers of the website realize that this could have been a potentially valuable resource and find that when they click on it, it does not actually exist, which is frustrating. Alongside this, search engines realize the link is broken and has not been removed and will reduce the quality of their SERPs (their position in search engines). It is always important to regularly check for links.
