Broken links on your WordPress website are a huge barrier to being indexed correctly on search engines. Not only are broken links annoying, they also contribute to a bad user experience. Search engines want a user to have a good experience so they will not send traffic to a page with a broken link. The Broken Link Checker fixes this by going through all your content and displaying all places where there's a broken link. Once you find this out you can fix these issues by finding the correct links or redirecting the links to another piece of content.
