Broken links are always bad. Whenever I go to a website that has broken links my first thought is to not buy from them.

Broken links can harm your site in many way, including it's SEO, it's reliability, it's trust with potential customer/clients as pointed out by @VeyraHost and many other ways.

If you find that you site has broken links then get them fixed one way or the other ASAP! ;)

Broken Links have bad effect on SEO and bad impact on your site's visitors.
If you are running a wordpress site then broken link checker is recommended for this purpose. I would suggest unlinking all the broken links and link text should also be removed done if its in the written form on your site.

I installed a plugin to detect broken links in my site, and there are 2-3 broken links. These are harmful for the site or not ? Should I remove them ?
If you know about them, why wouldn't you just remove them? In terms of SEO, some people think you'll lose link juice through busted links, but I haven't seen a definitive answer.

Hello.
Only 2-3 broken links are not a big deal, it's ok. You can fix it with 301 redirect to homepage or assigned page. WMT will update after few days.

Do you Wordpress? The Broken link checker plugin is a great free choice. It's easy to use.
Check out this one:
Code:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/broken-link-checker/
After you found those broken links.
Install the "404 to 301" plugin to solve all. As i had mentioned above. You can fix those broken link/not found url of your website with automatic 301 redirect to homepage or assigned page. WMT will update after few days.
Enjoy.
