The Links Status report in Analytics is providing misleading results. Several of our articles include lists of URLs that our clients must whitelist. We did not format these URLs to be functioning links, we entered them simply as text. The Links Status report, though, is reporting them as "Broken Links" I assume the report simply recognizes the "https://..." format of the URL text and assumes that these are supposed to be links. Perhaps the report could look for links that actually have <a href="..."> tags to decide what is a link?
In addition, the report also includes links to our company LinkedIn and Twitter pages as "broken", but we have confirmed that the links are correct and take users to the correct pages. So it is not clear why they are listed as "broken."
