How do you guys find Broken Links?

Currently, we use services like 'ScreamingFrog' to test for Broken Links.

Which services do you guys use? And which is the best (paid or free both) according to you guys?

Google webmaster Tools is the best online tool to find out broken link to your site. You have to add your site on the web-master tool and then you can access everything like traffic, keywords ranking, site status, site issues (broken link, server error etc) You can manage your site issue from web-master tool.

There are also given some tools like

Screaming Frog SEO Spider
W3C Link Checker
LinkChecker
ahref
semrush and many more.

Good luck

Yes, Webmaster is best tool to find broken links and you can also know about server errors and other errors. Apart from Webmaster, other tools are useful like brokenlinkcheck, smallseotools.com & Screaming Frog SEO Spider.

Webmaster Tools is all I need. There are other options though if you don't want to use Google's offering. Here are some:
deadlinkchecker.com
powermapper.com/products/sortsite/checks/link-checker
brokenlinkcheck.com
drlinkcheck.com

Webmaster is the best solution for all your web related operations. It identify issues of your site and even let you know if its been infected by malware. Moreover, its free to use if you have a GWT(Gmail Webmaster Tools) account.

The broken link will be listed in "Crawl Error" in Google Search Console.
You can find them in GSC and fic the broken links.
Photo for example.

You can use the Screaming Frog SEO spider for free (and paid) to check for broken links (the http response ‘404 not found error’) on your website.

If you are using Screaming Frog, then why do you need anything else?

I know a lot of people recommended Webmaster Tools in this thread, but that really is not very effective. You could have a broken link for weeks or even longer before it is reported in there.

Screaming From or Xenu are the best option for finding broken links immediately.
