Link FixIt! is one of those cute little details that make the package of tools from SBI! so useful.
Whenever I get an email notification from LinkFixIt, I simply forward it to my virtual assistant and I know that my broken link is taken care of.
What Does LinkFixIt Do?
Just as the name says, you are warned about one or several broken links on your page by an email alert. It is written like from a friendly, helpful little fairy that has some personality which makes it quite likable.
At least it sounds more likable than a big buzz sound and a red error button telling you that you have some broken links, right?
How I Saved Time By Outsourcing The Repair of Broken Links?
When I get a LinkFixIt report, I simply forward it to my virtual assistant. This way, I don’t have any worries. It helps to use other tools that find broken links from time to time just in case you have overlooked something.
That’s because LinkFixIt only tells you once about each broken link, but the email message is honest about this upfront too.
Still, repairing broken links is one of those tedious small tasks that normal blog owners will probably skip and which slowly eat away at the quality of your site.
With the virtual assistant, this problem is easily delegated and taken care of. No more cleaning up for me.
Let me know in the comments if you still clean up everything yourself or if you don’t care if you find a broken link.
Or if you would love it to have someone virtually clean up your website for you.
