Broken Links and Load Time Tools

Kristen Lindsey - Thursday, July 21, 2005



Broken Links and poor web page load time can adversely affect your search engine rankings, not to mention provide an unsatisfactory experience for visitors. Thanks to an Internet marketing email group I am a member of, here are a number of free tools you can use to measure these page factors.

Load Time:

NetMechanic - provides a number of diagnostics for web pages. Free trial.
Dreamweaver - Dreamweaver is a website design/development tool. It has a function to check for load time.
Web Page Analyzer -  This tool offers load time measurement and recommendations for improvement.

Broken Links:

NetMechanic - provides a number of diagnostics for web pages. Free trial.
Xenu Link Sleuth - this is a free download. Good for large sites.
Dreamweaver - Dreamweaver is a website design/development tool. It has a function to check for broken links.
Web Page Analyzer -  This tool identifies broken links and recommendations for improvement.

Regular checks for broken links is really important (Google penalizes for too many of these), and focusing especially on your home page and product page load times will make visitors and search engines happier.
