Broken Links

A Broken Link occurs when a link is clicked for a File Name that doesn't exist: the Hit has a 404 Status Code (Not Found) and a Referrer.

If your Broken Links reports are empty, it usually means one of the following:
  • there are no hits with a 404 Status Code in the selected date range
  • the log doesn't contain a referrer field

The Broken Links reports show the following Dimensions:


FILE NAME
Files that are the target of Broken Links during the selected date range.


LINK TYPE
Broken Links are grouped into two categories: Internal & External.  Each Profile's "Hostname(s)" field is used to determine the Link Type.

Internal:
  • the Broken Link exists within your website | application
  • use the Referrer segment to identify the Page(s) that contain the link

External:
  • the Broken Link exists on a remote website
  • use the Referrer segment to identify the Page(s) that contain the link
  • Use the Linking Domain segment to identify the remote Hostname


LINKING DOMAIN
The Hostname for the Page that contains the Broken Link.  


REFERRER
The full referrer for the Page that contains the Broken Link.
