  • Shouldn't this be on Server Fault or Super User? – CajunLuke Aug 23 '12 at 1:29
  • It's a request for software that runs on a Mac. It's on topic here. – Daniel Aug 23 '12 at 1:38

What are you using to watch the stats on your website? Most stats packages that read the logs will give you a 404 report (eg. AWStats, Summary).

If you're looking for a program to run on your Mac to check that for you; Piltdown Link Checker, Integrity, WebLight or LinkByLink are all options.


If you want to track broken links, the best way to do it is checking the production/online site. I’ve used BrokenLinkCheck in the past. It’s free and it delivers. Your mileage may vary.

  • i asked for a software not online service, but thanks anyway! – alexus Sep 3 '10 at 0:31

    An online service is a form of software. You might have a reason to prefer local software over software running on a remote machine, but "software" and "online service" are not mutually exclusive categories. – Daniel Aug 23 '12 at 1:37
