For search engines, as well as for users, the authoritative sources are the ones that provide current content, supplementing relevant existent sources . Unfortunately, referring sources often vanish or an accidental typo happens and then a website starts referring to non-existent sources, which will cause a decrease in its authority. Since, same as people, the search engines don't trust a content that would lead to non-existent content, you should regularly check your content section to see if it contains links to non-existent sources, with broken link checker in Marketing Miner.

Import URLs that a user needs to get data about
