Then, if there are broken links, how to fix them? As a WordPress user, you can use below four ways to fix those broken links on your blog:
1. How to Fix Broken Links with the Broken Link Checker Plugin
If you have installed the Broken Link Checker plugin in your WordPress blog, then you can view, remove or change those broken links on the report page directly.
2. How to Fix Broken Links by Editing Posts directly

3. How to Fix Broken Links with phpMyAdmin
You can log in your phpMyAdmin dashboard, search the broken links, and then remove or change them.
The above three ways will be available for you to remove or change the broken links on your own blog, and if you want to remove those broken links on Google search results, you can use the Google Webmaster Tools.
4. How to Fix Broken Links with Google Webmaster Tools
As a matter of fact, Google will remove all the 404 error pages from its search results, but which will take time. And if you need to urgently remove your 404 web pages from Google search results, you can submit the broke links of those web pages to Google via the Webmaster Tools.
By the way, before fixing broken links, you’d better make sure that those links are really broken, since some good links may be also considered as broken ones by some free online broken link checkers.
For example, when a website is down, all of its links will be treated as broken, so it’s a good idea to visit the broken links and check if they are really broken.
