Today's LinkedIn Nugget

URL wanna check on this

I was prepping for a phone conversation, reading in his profile’s Project section an interview he was featured in Forbes Magazine (wrong place, BTW; an article belongs in the Publications section. There’s time to mention that bit of advice to him later…)

So I clicked the link in the Project section to read his interview. After all, a Forbes interview is not to be missed.

But it was missing.

The link had gone stale. A 404 error blasted across my screen:

Forbes404

Uh oh, as Forbes says.

Folks, check your links. All of them. Magazines are notorious for changing links, even after the initial publication date. I know. This happened to me with one of my inc.com articles.

Don’t let it happen to you. Take a few seconds to check your links from time to time.
