Do i need to check a dead external link in a dead page? I posted it 2 years ago, and there isnt any visitor to that article, should i delete the external link?
It’s up on you. As per my opinion, there should not be any dead link in your whole site. Because at any time it can show a negative impact on user.
We add external link …
- To help user get more information.
- To make content relevant for SEO
I feel keeping alive link is important.
