    I Searched with (Google and Bing)  for problems with having "broken links"

    and the result was pages and references can cause problems.

    I you paste the reference into the IE Address bar is not a validation for what is going on.

    Not knowing more about how your pages links and pages are being

           used you might consider getting an additional tool to verify

        the links and references.

    You might look at Source Forge Project "LinkChecker" http://linkchecker.sourceforge.net/ .

    The LinkChecker could help to confirm or fix the problems for the Seo Tool kit.

    Could you provide the details of the status code, if you are in the  Details dialog you can find the "Related URLs" menu at the top toolbar, you should see the URL in there, click Details and you will see all the details on why it thinks it was broken. You should be able to see the Status Code as well as the Content returned by the server (in the Content tab) and even the raw Headers.

    So please post those details in order for us to know more.

    The broken links were 404 errors. I am not sure why, but if I paste the "broken link" in my browser it works. There is no sign-in for these pages. Wondering if it could be robots.txt.

    If filter out the 404s for reporting.
