Great spider software at a better price.

FREE software (with optional donation to their favorite charity) from a great guy in Denmark who knows customer service. Read his interesting story on how his software came into being. We use it to check broken links, our site having over 5,000 direct links! It's so damn fast you'll want to stay at your computer until the search is done, unlike some spiders you have to pay for.

Before you run the software, check out the optional preferences first. Then be sure you have I.E. explorer open. Once Link Sleuth has checked your site based on your preferences, it will automatically ask you if you want a report. Click Okay, and your findings will pop-up in the I.E. browser in HTML for printing. If you want the entire search listing okay links, you can drop them into Excel using the software's export tab-delimited option. Of course with 5,000 links, we don't recommend that option unless you like reading lists. -
