Attention: This blog post may raise concerns for many of you. Running a blog requires a significant investment of time. After several months, I’ve chosen to revitalize the website and reassess my content. An intriguing discovery I made relates to inactive URLs. Dead URLs can arise from various causes, adversely affecting user experience and website performance, and eventually, impacting rankings. Over time, I observed that some individuals neglect to update their websites. Some sites undergo domain changes without implementing proper redirection rules. Meanwhile, others opt to erase content to rewrite history—a choice I respect—and some are simply too occupied to address past issues.

Hence, that article might be a concern to many.

So I decided to make all broken URLs public and what I am doing to fix them. If in the future anyone wants me to re-fix or amend an amended link/URL that is of concern to you, please send me an email at [email protected]. I tried to resolve whatever I could to the best knowledge.

I used a free online tool at The total number of Broken links found is 35:
