Link rot occurs when links on a web site break. It’s simple: the links stop going to where they’re supposed to go, and the user typically gets some kind of 404 Page Not Found error.

Hello Friends :)
The term linkrot is slang for links that no longer work, or links that lead to pages that no longer function... ;)

Linkrot is the tendency of hypertext links from one Web site to another site to become useless as other sites cease to exist or remove or reorganize their Web pages.

A measure of how many and what percent of a website's links are broken.

Links may broken for a number of reason, but four of the most common reasons are:

- A website going offline.
- Linking to content which is temporary in nature (due to licensing structures or other reasons).
- Moving a page's location.
- Changing a domain's content management system.

Most large websites have some broken links, but if too many of a site's links are broken it may be an indication of outdated content, and it may provide website users with a poor user experience. Both of which may cause

search engines to rank a page as being less relevant.

           Link rot describes the way in which links to web pages routinely decay or becomes unavailable at times.Most people searching a site get frustrated when they click links only to find they don't exist,and examples of link rot can be seen in a variety of sources.
            To prevent link rot,web sites can add redirects,which automatically take users to the correct URL,or they can provide the new and exact URL on the old page.

Link Rot is the tendency of hypertext links from one Web site to another site to become useless as other sites cease to exist or remove or reorganize their Web pages. A recent survey showed that almost one of every four Web pages in the survey sample contained a bad link.
Observers note that the amount of linkrot that occurs can be correlated closely (and not surprisingly) with the passage of time.

Link Rot does not take tendency connected with hypertext back links collected from one of Web site to a new internet site for being useless because different web-sites cease to exist or even take away or even reorganize their own Webpages. It really is a friendly time period to the process through which more and more back links indicate website pages, servers or even different assets that have come to be for a long time not available.

Link rot (or linkrot), also known as link death or link breaking, is an informal term for the process by which increasing numbers of links (either on individual websites or the Internet in general) point to web pages, servers or other resources that have become permanently unavailable. The phrase also describes the effects of failing to update out-of-date web pages that clutter search engine results. A link that does not work any more is called a broken link, dead link or dangling link.

Link rot also know as dead/broken link which tells you that the link to your site is no more alive/page has been removed. You can check it on Google webmaster tool and remove it. Because broken links put bad affect on your site ranking.

Link Rot refers to link breaking or link death. It is a process by which links to web pages become unavailable permanently i.e. links stop going to places where they were designed to go.

As per my view Link Rot means the links which are bad, broken or rotten. You can remove such links from your google webmasters tool by using disavow option.

If you wont remove such links then you will get caught by google through penguin update. So its better to search for such links and remove it.

 Link rot is created when a Web page is moved, taken down or reorganized. Clicking on a rotten link usually results in a 404 error, which includes a message that the page cannot be found. Link rot that occurs due to website reorganization can be corrected with redirects. However, some link rot is inevitable as websites do simply disappear.

Linkrot scans a site for inaccessible links (http error 404, 500, etc.) and saves a log with bad links that you can open in Excel. It's a Windows console application developed in C# (.NET 2.0 stack). Simple, single thread crawling for dead links, broken links, dangling links.
