First I would like to say I think site map generator is a great tool, but I have a problem every time I crawl I get more broken links than the last time, also links that are supposed to be broke work on my website and if I fix a link that is broken when I re-crrawl it still says it is broken. Is google pinged evry time I crawl my site, any help would b appreciated. Thanks

Hello,

please PM me the link to the broken links list and include an example URL that is reported as broken although it's working correctly for you.

That link is indeed broken - when you click on it, 404 error appears.
And here is the code on referred from page:
<a href="url:%20http%3A//www.tenerife-villa-guide.co.uk"><br>

it should be:

The link is formatted not accordingly to standards, so you should correct the issue as described above to get it working.

Even if the link works in browser (browser fixes it automatically for you), it might be unreadable to search engine bots, since it's not correctly formatted in html source.
