Overall 404-check

We just transferred our site to Hubspot and I wanted to check on 404's. I used brokenlinkcheck.com but that doesn't work well with Hubspot. 

 

To check for 404's I now have to manually check every page and blogpost from our previous site. That's one **bleep** of a job with some 150 pages and blogs. 

 

Idea: It would be great to have the option to check on 404/broken links for the entire site, in one place. Just like brokenlinkcheck.com does.

 Yes. Please fix this. On our old company website (Joomla), all I had to do was go to the 404 error section, see all the urls that people tried to go to, type in what URLs anyone going to that should redirect to, and taking care of all future 404 errors was a 3 second job. Super easy. There are neat Wordpress plugins that do this too.

This feature would be incredibly helpful.

This would be super helpful for those who are migrating websites with lots of content already built out. We are running into a similar problem right now and this would be incredibly useful!

This is my biggest regret for migrating my site to Hubspot... the lack of this feature. Smiley Sad

Hi folks,

We are actively reviewing how to implement this type of functionality, as we agree it would be quite useful. As soon as more information is available, I'll be sure to share it. 

Cheers,

I agree. It's pretty difficult for a non-tech marketing person to find these issues if they have to use a third-party crawler software. This would be an excellent addition.

Hi people,

I came across this article that shows how to find broken links in HubSpot.
I hope this helps.


Cheers,

Thanks for your response. Using the method you describe doesn't solve this issue, because you'd need to go into each page one-by-one to discover your broken links. As a maintenance task, it's a good idea to regularly check and fix your internal broken links and a broken link report would be a useful feature to make this efficient.

@Kasimir7 @garrettdigital Also read the article .. that gets me a tiny bit closer. But I agree. I should have a single place that has all these. I would even like to be alerted by email when my website has a broken link. Nothing more frustrating than running a google or facebook campaign down a funnel that you didn't know had a broken link until a prospect or client points it out. :/

@Kasimir7 were you able to get this to work? My pages look like this2020-05-14_14h41_17.png

@shatton, usually it takes some time for it find the links. 
I would refresh it in 24 hours again (see yellow banner in your screenshot).
I agree it would be great to have such a functionality for all pages, however it is one step closer to what we are looking for. Smiley Happy
