Broken Link Status Codes

Every link in a website will return a status code. Typically, links with a 404 status code should be prioritized for updating.

When a link is clicked, a web browser will receive a status code and display content based on the status code.

DubBot allows users to filter reported Broken Links based on status code. Broken links reported by DubBot will usually display a status code of 400 or greater.

DubBot uses bot technology to automate the testing of broken links. In some cases, web servers and some web pages have been programmed to refuse connection to a bot.

Often these pages will return a 401 (Unauthorized) or 403 (Forbidden) status code. While this information could be useful to some users, it may overwhelm reporting and action on actual issues. For these users, DubBot allows for filtering by status code.

Below is the list of the status codes that are reportable within DubBot.
