If you've maintained a website for any length of time, you'll know that links very quickly become broken, because we move, delete or change our own pages, and other people that we link to do the same. This is called 'link rot'
A broken link on your site is a dead end for your visitors and will also be bad news for your search engine optimisation (SEO).
Unless you enjoy clicking every single link on your site followed by the back button, then you'll need to use a website crawler like Integrity!
Feed it your home page address (url) and Integrity will follow all of your internal links to find your pages, checking the server response code for all internal and external links found.
Features: Reviewers sometimes give low star ratings due to lack of X feature. The free version of Integrity is deliberately no-frills - no more than a simple but effective link checker. Integrity Plus has more of those features, such as filtering, sorting, exporting, XML sitemap functionality and managing multiple sites. Integrity Pro adds SEO / spell checking and Scrutiny is a more advanced app still with even more features.
If a meta http-refresh type redirect redirects from an internal url to an external one, then the link was being left marked as an 'internal' link. It's arguable whether this type of link (which redirects from internal url to external) is an internal or external link, but it's important for certain internal processes that it's marked as external when the redirection occurs. This was happening properly for the more usual types of redirect.
