I do go through my website myself
and click on and check all of my links. Especially when I make new pages, but, it is
hard to keep up with a whole bunch of links, all of the time. I try to be as thorough as I can.
All of the links within my own website should work perfectly.
I have recently converted all of my websites and
webpages to hand coded HTML
Learning HTML & CSS Is Fun And Easy
Putting the links in my hand coded (plain text)
documents is quite simple. I have a snippet with my main link code in it that I just copy and paste into my .html docs.
Then I just change the information and insert the proper web address into my code. Actually, I mostly don’t even need to use my
snippet, because there are usually other links on the page that I am working on and I usually just copy one of those and
paste it to a new location and then change the information and insert the new link address. However, if I change a page
or move it to a different web address, (which I try not to do, but while converting my website to all hand coded HTML CSS,
I have done it with a few pages), I may not get all of the links that go to that page right away. So basically, all of my
own links should work perfectly and I do think that I am pretty thorough with checking them all, however, if any of them
don’t work the way they are suppose too, feel free to send me an email to let me know and I will fix it right away.
As for the links that go outside of my own website;
(to other people's websites and webpages); ~ These can be much harder
to keep up with. When I make links to other people's webpages, I simple go to their webpage in my internet browser and copy & paste
the web address into the links on my webpages that go to their webpage. This way I can't make any mistakes re-typing it. It is just
a simple copy & paste.
However, I have no control over other peoples webpages.
If they change the web address of their webpage or remove their webpage,
my link to it won't work anymore. When I first make my webpages with links to other websites I obviously check them to make sure they
work. But, it would be difficult to keep up with all of them, all of the time.
Lets say I make a link to another website and it works fine when I post it, then three months later the webpage is moved
or deleted. I wouldn't know that it was moved or deleted if I hadn't check that particular link for a while. So if any of these
links don't work, I may not know about it unless you send me an email telling me about this so I can fix it. I will
fix it right away.
I will absolutely NOT make any links to any “Reported Attack Sites”
or any weird, subjectional, or suspect websites.
The reason I am writing this, is because, this has already happened to me. I was creating a webpage with a bunch of links to
other people’s websites and,or webpages. I haven’t published it on the internet yet. However, I do save it to my hard drive
and check it in my browser, through the internet, from there. It works the same either way. While I was clicking on the links
to check them, one of my links took me to a “Reported Attack Site”. It worked fine when I made the link, then, about three days
later when I checked it again, it had changed.
Now, I know I didn’t put a link in my webpage that went to this site. In fact, I was sure I didn’t. I only copy & paste the
links, I don’t type them. My first thought was that it was the SMARiTT people doing it to me again, and to be completely honest
with you, I am “fairly” sure it was the SMARiTT people doing it to me again. Guess I won’t know if it was, and can’t prove that
it was, or do anything about it, if it was, until I get SMARiTT and look it up to see if it was too. (Da)
. Anyways, after
checking my link and the web address of the page it was pointing to, I found out that the webpage that my link was going to had
move to a new (very similar) web address. I had to do a search to find the original page that it pointed too. The web addresses
were very similar, so I guess they changed their web address and put something else on the old web address that my browser (FireFox)
said was a “Reported Attack Site”. Hmmmm. The link was pointing to one of the major search engine web pages. I don’t think a large
company would do this on purpose, unless they were deliberately trying to make it look like I was intentionally trying to send people
to a “Reported Attack Site” on purpose. Since this happened, I find it necessary to publish this, just to let you know that I did not
and would not intentional send anyone to a “Reported Attack Site” from any of my webpages or links.
