After you have run the link scanner you will be able to display the results to see what actions were taken for the links that were found to be no longer working or breaking your rules. This document will describe how to view the link scanner results and the functions you can use from that interface.
Viewing Link Scanner Results
To view the link scanner results use the Directory > Links > Scan Links function from the control panel menu. This will load a page which will show the current link scanner configurations that are defined. You can click on the icon for any of those configurations to see the results from the last scan that was run.
When you click on one of those icons you will come to a page where you will see the link scanner results and be able to search them.
