I like using Ahref's Content Explorer tool to find similar content/backlinks etc. But I think if they simply showed broken links as well for topics/keywords, that would be so useful in building links.


Does something like this exist? It was suggested as a feature over a year ago but it hasn't gotten anywhere: https://ahrefs.canny.io/content-explorer/p/add-broken-yesno-filter


It looks Aherfs' API has the functionality to separate broken links: https://ahrefs.com/api/documentation/broken-links. We just need to search by anchor text, title and alt text.

    Not that I know of but you could check for your competitor's broken links to achieve a similar result.

    How about if you export them and check their status code in a tool like screaming frog?

    If you are not satisfied this result, you can also use other tools to find broken or 404 error links. Check your competitor's broken links and compare with your links.
