Hello,

on the Broken Links page along with bad URLs you can find the URLs were they're linked FROM. That will help you to find them and correct.

It may be a bug with Sitemaps or Blogger. I have checked and recheked the pages and do not find the bad urls that are listed. Are you willing to look at it? What can we do?

If you view the source code of http://www.americanhomeinspectordirectory.com/blog/2006/08/love-your-carpet.html

you will see the following html

<a href="sms:?body=Hi%2C%20check%20out%20Home%20Inspection%20and%20Repair%20Tips%20at%20www.americanhomeinspectordirectory.com%2Fblog%2F">Send As SMS</a>

and that is what is being picked up as a broken link. It is part of the Blogger header.

Should I remove the code? I am not sure what it does. I guess I could try it and keep a copy of it un-edited. Please tell me what you think.

Hi, its part of the Blogger header. It doesn't do anything as it is a broken link and just goes to a 404 page.

Can I send you the blooger code so you can point out what I can remove? When I look at the code in the template it is not anythink like view source. It must pull from a database.

If you are talking about your blog then where are the broken links reported? I have just tried it and you haven't got any.

If the generator is reporting these broken links then it will also report what pages they are found on. View the source code of the page with the bad link to see where the problem is.
