Suppose you rollout a new feature and have done internal over haul in application which might have broken some links. You assume your testing team would have thrashed out the issues but that might not be case. How to ensure that all the links and buttons are working inside your application and none of them lead to 404 error ?

This question is probably better suited at WebMasters.SE. Questions here should be geared towards end-users and using a web app, whereas the other site is for operating websites and things like that. – Rebecca Chernoff Aug 20 '10 at 20:42

You need a tool that runs over your site and checks all of the links.

I use SSW Link Auditor which will run over all your links to pages and images and give you a nice report. The free version works for up to 500 links but if you have more you may need to purchase one of the other versions.
