Attack of the AEM Link Checker!!

Published on by Dan KlcoPicture of Me Dan Klco

Nearly every user of Adobe Experience Manager underestimates the AEM Link Checker. Most people think of the AEM Link Checker as that annoying feature that incorrectly strips links in AEM, but the AEM Link Checker and do far more. Not only will the AEM Link Checker removes links, incorrectly flags links as broken but it can also bring an AEM instance to a crawl. Which isn't to say that the idea of having a tool to check links is a bad idea. A good crawler like Screaming Frog is a vital tool in every digital marketer's toolbox, but why is it run on every request?
