Actually I am amazed at how few broken links I encounter in all of my online research.
But occasionally, we do encounter the challenge of broken links.
I use the following process to meet the challenge of a broken link:
Deconstruct the broken link into a “likely domain” and the “deliverable Sought.” (In this case a .pdf file.)
So in this case the likely domain was “Nuclear Regulatory Commission,” and the deliverable sought was “BR0470 .pdf”
I searched for “Nuclear Regulatory Commission BR0470.pdf “
- And Google gave me this :
So I followed the top result that Google provided.
- Which took me to the page that has a link to the file that I wanted:
I then selected the pdf link on that page which was in fact the deliverable that I was seeking.
- Which then delivered this:
Which is the deliverable that I was seeking, and a very good reference on Lean Six Sigma!
That’s my process for dealing with the challenge of broken links keeping me from the information that I want.
