<p><strong>Link rot</strong> is real, it is common, and it is pervasive. What is <strong>link rot</strong>? Link rot is essentially <em>the process by which hyperlinks cease to function, usually because the web page or server they point to has moved or has become permanently unavailable</em>. It has existed since the internet began. An example of its influence can be seen as recently as 2000, when <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/bmb.2003.494031010165">a study</a> found that within 24 months, 50% of .com domains and 20% of .gov domains were no longer viable. <a href="http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1472669614000255">Another study</a> found that 70% of links in Harvard Law Review and 50% of links within the United States Supreme Court opinions are no longer viable. If we are to take the internet as a primary resource seriously, then we seriously need to think about undertaking a better way of long-term preservation of link contents.</p>
<h2 id="how-stop-link-rot">How stop link rot</h2>
<p>Link rot can be combated in several ways.</p>
<ol style="list-style-type: decimal">
<li>Use a <a href="http://www.doi.org/">digital object identifier</a> which provides persistent and actionable identification. The a website under a DOI changes, it can be changed in the DOI service so that the unique DOI identifier always links to the most up-to-date material.</li>
<li>Use a <a href="http://ipfs.io/">permanent web framework</a>. Our current web protocol has many nodes of failure, while newer hypermedia frameworks seek a more distributed protocol with builtin content identies that would allow data to permanently be available.</li>
<li>Only link to archiving sites like the <a href="https://archive.org/web/">Internet Archive</a> or <a href="https://perma.cc/">perma.cc</a>. <strong>My little program I’ve written helps to combat link rot by providing a simple and easy way to convert all your links to an archived link.</strong></li>
