What is LinkMiner?

LinkMiner is an advanced Chrome extension designed to check broken links on webpages, and provides comprehensive link and social data. It not only scans for dead links but also offers link metrics, visibility of total and external links on a webpage, and an export feature for all identified links. The recent update allows users to get metric insights about links directly from Google search results.

LinkMiner takes broken link checking to the next level. You can now find out more about the links you're checking so you can make smarter decisions, quicker. Get link & social data on any link on a page, be able to export all links from a page, and even display link data next to each link on the page.

You can also utilize LinkMiner to find out how many total or external links are on the page you're viewing.

UPDATE 1.5: You can now toggle the LinkMiner on Google search result pages to find out various link metrics about each result (without having to click-through to that page).
