A dead end page is a URL that has no links on it. It's considered a dead end since users have nowhere to navigate except for using the back button. Since dead end pages offer a poor user experience, they're best avoided.

Often times, a crawler such as Dragonbot will show a URL as having no links on the page while users can actually see links on the page. This is usually due to links existing only within Flash, JavaScript, or other elements that are inaccessible to crawlers. If Dragonbot cannot find these links, it's very likely search engines will not be able to access them as well.
