Linkrot (or "link rot") is the common Web phenomenon of hyperlinks which lead nowhere. Usually this happens because Webmasters move resources around (or expire pages) instead of making everything persistent in perpetuity.

Everything suffers the opposite of linkrot: links proliferate!

link farm = L = link-dead

link rot n.

The natural decay of web links as the sites they're connected to change or die. Compare bit rot.
