Site Links, SEO & Metadata, Weblinks, Content Links

The Link Checker for Joomla uses an external service to crawl your website and find broken links and images on your website.

  • Favourite
  • Report

In contrast to search engine tools like the Google Search Console, which only show if an URL on your website is not reachable, it does not matter for the Link Checker if a link leads to an internal or external URL. The Link Checker will find all dead links.

The Link Checker works out of the box for every extension. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler does the heavy work and just acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages of you website once.

Main Features

  • Simple setup.
  • Works out of the box with all Joomla extensions.
  • Low computation costs for your webserver.

Limitations of the free Basic Version

The basic version of the Link Checker is free to use and checks up to 500 URLs. If your website has more URLs, you could purchase a token for the Link Checker Professional, which allows to check up to 500'000 URLs and comes with the advantages listed below.

Advantages of the Professional Version

  • Check up to 500'000 URLs.
  • Check Broken Images.
  • Check Broken Embedded YouTube Videos.
  • Form Login Support to check login protected pages.
  • Automatic Daily Checks.

Does what it says - exactly

Posted on 18 September 2019
Link Checker does exactly what it says and does it well. A pleasure to use.
Ease of use
Very simple to use with understandable results not always achieved elsewhere.
Superb support. Questions were answered quickly and understandably.
I used this to: I use Link Checker to find any dead links on the web site. It sets out both the dead link and the page that calls it.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review.

Best regards

Worked like a charm!

Found about 20 broken links on my site that I fixed as a result. Now with the added ability to check links behind a login.
Ease of use
Easy to install and easy to run. Couldn't be much easier I don't think.
Excellent support. I had asked about checking links behind a login and developer remembered and contacted me saying this was now possible.
Good documentation on the developers site covering the application.
I used this to: Checking broken links on my site and pointing to new correct links.
Owner's reply: Hi Jared,

Thank you very much for your review.

I'm glad that the Link Checker helped you to improve your website.

Best regards,
It installs and runs quickly, crawling my entire Joomla website of more than 1000 pages in a few seconds.
Ease of use
Very easy to use. The report shows the pages where there are broken links with the faulty urls.
The support from Marco Beierer is second to none. Marco responded quickly and suggested ways to extend Link Checker functionalities.
The documentation is simple and clear. Link Checker is offered in a professional version for a large number of urls or for multilingualism.
I used this to: I use this to find broken links on our Joomla website. The site was upgraded manually after skipping of a few major updates and some links became either broken or landed us on a wrong internal page.
