A dead link or broken link is a link on the world wide web that points to a webpage or server that is permanently unavailable. Dead links are commonplace on the Internet, but they are considered to be unprofessional.
The most common result of a dead link is a 404 error, which indicates that the page could not be found.
Dead links can also refer to URLs that point to sites unrelated to the content requested, e.g., a search for "Sports at ESPN.com" resulting in pornography or advertisments.
Dead links are commonly caused by link rot.
