How can I easily find dead links on my website?

I want to find links that are dead on my website, but it has many of them. Is there a free service that can identify the dead links for me?

    If you want a dedicated tool I suggest to give Xenu a try.

    Hi Nitz,

    If you have DreamWeaver you can scan your source for broken links (Site-> Check Links). If you don't, W3 has a link checker.

    MakeUseOf has written a few articles on this topic as well:
