What is Broken Link and why it is so important?

A Broken Link, also known as a Broken Hyperlink, Dead Link or Rotten Link is a hyperlink in the page that is linked to an empty or non-existent internal or external page or file.

Having broken links leaves a negative impact on your website's usability and ranking with Search Engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, DuckDuckGo, Yandex, etc.
It's important to understand that the only way for search engines to rank websites is by crawling them, and if there are dead links on your pages, it can stop search engine spiders from crawling your site and remove from the index.
