Hi Testers, Recently i attended interview in an mnc, in managerial round i was asked a question 'you have 4 hours of time in your hands and you have to test a web page having 5000 links how will you perform the testing on it'
Agree with Abu.
Practically it is not possible to check each and every link manually even if u have 10 days of time and no one rely on manual testing in such cases.
We have Pogo(internal tool) and give the base url, i will check all sub-links in that web page and it will give u a report which all are broken.
In case of manual, u have to understand the functionality and i hope 50-100 links which be thr which are more important and frequently used by customers and u need to identify them and need to test those as initial priority.
