Goodbye 404 Links;
Hello Better SEO!
If you’ve read very far into Search Engine Optimization, you’re aware that broken links leaving your blog can cause Google to get all crankyface with you.
And if you’ve been blogging on WordPress for very log, it’s almost guaranteed some of your past visitors have exited the blogging world!
It’s easy enough to clean up “regular” comment URL links using Broken Link Checker… but what about those CommentLuv links that seem immune to all of our usual scrubbing bubbles?
CommentLuv Link Cleaner!
This handy little plugin did a great job on my blog.
I had 10,000 comments that have CommentLuv links. From that, it found 27 that it suspected were broken links.
Let me tell ya… It’s a WHOLE LOT EASIER to manually check 27 links than it is to test 10,000!
Out of the 27, 10 were definitely producing a 404 error (so I removed the link but kept the comment).
I also spotted some trouble on a friends site (really slow loading) that I was able to notify her about.
Simply remove it after you are done using it. You can easily re-install it in 6 months to a year when you might want to run it again.
Easy to use, stable, safe and with the ability to chose to not lose the comment… gotta be a typically dynamite Andy Bailey special!

PS: This plugin is useful regardless of whether you have the free or the premium version of CommentLuv. I adore CommentLuv Premium!
