    NO, I have never seen an "article" that discusses "building broken links", but it seems like a completely pointless exercise to me.

    As a link building tactic, broken link building is an effective, white-hat, scalable, content-focused link building strategy that builds links through finding broken links, recreating that broken content, and helping webmasters replace broken links with your corrected link.

    NONE of the above are factual. It is just nonsense dreamed up by some 1995 "expert".

    This was ONLY a possibility when the Internet only had a few hundred websites to choose from. In the 'modern times' of automatic content republishing, content curation and content created by others such as blogs, forums, 'social' media etc. The 'webmaster' of any particular site has little or no control over the links that other people place.

    Can you honestly see your self asking FaceBook or Reddit if they could correct one 'broken' link out of the many thousands of URLs that are placed on their site per hour?
    The second word of the reply, should they even bother give your question enough credence to reply, IS going to be '... off'

    If you should happen to find a genuinely 'broken' link to a URL on your site, ALL you need to do is add a redirect so that the request then goes to a valid URI on your domain, but ONLY if the new location IS an appropriate replacement for the original content. If the 'broken' link goes to a URL/page that has been removed for legitimate reason IT IS PERFECTLY OKAY for the request to return a 404 status.

    The idea that every link should lead to actual content is simply arrant nonsense.

    Broken links can be deleted by using the tool like Disavow.

    One can only assume that you either;

    Did not read the original question

    OR

    Did not understand it.

    Very useful. Remember the idea of quality back links. improving the links of the website refering to you means improving its authority hence passing the same authority to your website
