Just a question out of curiosity, does anyone have any figures of how much link rot there is, say over the space of a year?

I somehow remember a figure of 5-10%. So year on year, 5-10% of your backlinks would disappear because the backlink page is no longer 200 OK.

hi

My information is that Linkrot it has been reported as about 3% of the objects were no longer accessible after one year.

Hello Britishbry1,

Thanks for sharing. Was that from your own findings?

It varies hugely according to which kinds of websites you're talking about. 5-10% tallies with my experience for a directory I have where I'm pretty picky about who I add in the first place. For certain businesses the recession has taken a toll, and the same with government websites where cutbacks have meant web restructuring.
