More than 10% of links on my blog now point to the Internet Archive because the original link has disappeared.
You can help prevent link rot! Put in redirects when you move pages about! Missing redirects is the most common cause of link rot. I repair these when I can locate the new URL. Better yet, don’t make any changes to your URLs! 78% of detected redirects in the last year added or removed a trailing forward-slash from URLs. ⛓️ 0% used HTTP/2 push to speed up redirection.


@da good for you. also, data needs IDs. URLs locate, but do not identify, resources.
