Link verification on SER
Wanted to highlight a scenario I just noted.
I have a main project and a tier-1 running off the verified list of the main project.
Lets say my main project has built and auto-verified 10 links, and my tier-1 has built 100 links pointing to this 10.
Now I manually verify the 10 links of the main project and find that 3 of the links have gone dead and I remove them.
Then I go to manually verify my 100 tier-1 links so I can
a) remove any dead links from this 100, and also
b) remove any link from this 100 that is live but points to a dead link on the main project (which I have already removed).
When I do this verification, it does point (a) as expected, but it does not seems to care about point (b).
Size of the problem therefore gets bigger and bigger as I do tier-2, tier-3 etc, as I have loads of links that are live but useless because they point to dead links in the upper layers.
Am I missing any setting on the verification screen?
The problem seems to exist for the main project also.
In this example, lets say my main project was running off 3 urls, and it had built 10 backlinks pointing to these 3.
Now I have removed 1 of the 3 urls as per my project plan, and then I have started to verify the 10 main project backlinks.
Upon verification, it has only removed 3 links that went dead, but did not remove the links pointing to the url that I have already removed from the project.
Has anyone observed this? Any setting to handle this?
