    Online Service for checking my site for broken links

    Can anyone recommend an online link checker that navigates my site looking for broken links? A lot of my links are in a database so I need to actually check them online, unlike html sites within dreamweaver etc. I did use the W3C link validator but that seems to go haywire half way though telling me pages are being refused etc and generating errors that definitly do not exist.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S I dont want to buy any software to do this

    It's not online but run from your desktop but I'm sure Zenu linksleuth would do this for you.

    and it's free, just google for it.

    I tried that one oerdec, but it goes crazy about half way though and I dont know why. You can see what I mean by running www.onlinemortgageadvice.net though it.

    The errors it returns are all wrong. Zenu linksleuth does not find these problem and navigating to them returns no problems either.

    Maybe the error is caused by the script that generates the page. Sorry ive no idea

    You're welcome, I stumbled on that program years ago and I've been using it ever since.
