• Scan your site checking for broken links
• Check images and linked files as well as all internal and external links
• See problems at-a-glance highlighted in colour. Double-click for more detailed information
• In short, improve your website's quality and search engine ranking
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.
Important note about 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 features, such as filtering, sorting, exporting, XML sitemap functionality and managing multiple sites.
Integrity Pro adds SEO / spell checking and Scrutiny is an even more advanced app.

- When scanning locally (file://) and with the 'test anchors' setting switched on, could go into a loop.

Great Xenu alternative for OSX--- needs some work though
I've been dreaming of a GOOD Xenu alternative for OSX for a long time.... Finally, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The tool so far does just about everything that Xenu does, and I hope that over time the developer gets them all. Thanks so much for making this!
My only issue seems to be with performance. After 50k links, the program starts to get really laggy. I'm using a quad-core i7 mac with 8 gigs of RAM and the app isn't able to completely scan most of the sites I need it to. Granted, Xenu generally craps out after 500k links, so it's not an issue unique to this app. It just seems to happen earlier. With Xenu, I crank down the number of levels to scan down to zero when I get close to where I know it's going to die, let it finish crawling it's queue, and then assume that I have a decent enough sample. I can't figure out how to do it with this app.
Needs some more work, but the developer is still very active, so I have very high hopes!
Still going strong
This is honestly one of the oldest apps I have from the App Store, but I still install it on all my machines and use it regularly.
Why? Because despite looking, I haven't found an app that is this simple but still powerful enough to do what I need to do. I don't manage any huge sites, but I use this to regularly check many, many smaller sites that have rapidly changing information where links can be broken/out of date quickly and it works great.
Results are easy to read & understand broken down by error types. I especially appreciate that it shows you links that are found, but have been moved (200, 301, 302) as well as including all checked URLs that have no error in the output.
Finally - this app is from an era I miss: the one where "the developer does not collect any data from this app." Thanks!!
the answer for my really big site
I have a site with 4576 images and every other dead link checker I have tried stops after a max of 3000, usually way less.
This little treat is so powerful and customizable the way it searches, I have found dead links I did not even have a clue exisisted.
I will use it for all my other sites now too, I only sought it out to check this big site, but who knows what I am missing with the other free ones!
