Meet the world's most comprehensive SEO spider.
New in WebSite Auditor: JavaScript rendering, redirect chains, custom site search, click depth & more.
Crawl JavaScript & AJAX, find any piece of content with custom site search, and spot redirect chains.

A thorough site crawl is the technical foundation of SEO success. But due to the various technologies used to build websites in 2016 (pure HTML, AJAX, WordPress, etc.) and the multitude of SEO and UX factors to track, site auditing can become a challenge for SEOs.

Today, we're rolling out the second (and final) iteration of the big WebSite Auditor revamp, which was designed to change that. The update includes everything one can ask of an SEO spider: crawling dynamically generated content and password-protected sites, identifying redirect chains and slow pages, searching for any piece of content sitewide, and more. But more importantly, it enables you to see any site comprehensively, just like search engines do — regardless of what it's built on, how big it is, or which SEO factors you are looking to measure.

Ready to test the all-new SEO spider on your own site? If you already have WebSite Auditor installed, launch the tool, let it auto-update to version 4.16 and make sure to rebuild your project. If you don't, download the free version of WebSite Auditor and create a new project for your site — it only takes a few clicks.
Crawl AJAX sites and dynamically generated content.

WebSite Auditor can now execute JavaScript and crawl dynamically gеnerated content — exactly like modern browsers (and Google) do. That means that if your site is built on AJAX (with a platform like Wix or Squarespace) or uses JavaScript to generate some of its content, WebSite Auditor is now able to render and fully crawl it — including copy, links, and entire pages.

Where to find it: If you are creating a project, check the Show expert options box at Step 1, go to Advanced Options, and turn on Execute JavaScript. For an existing project, go to Preferences > Crawler Settings to do the same, and hit Rebuild Project.
Find all instances of any piece of code or text on your site.

WebSite Auditor's new Custom Search option lets you find all instances of any piece of content across a website — be it an HTML tag, a script, a plugin, or a piece of text. And if you're a designer or web developer, you're sure to love the CSS Selector option that lets you look for specific elements by indicating a selector — however complex — using CSS syntax.

Where to find it: Under Site Structure > Pages, by clicking on the Custom Search button on the top menu bar.
Quickly identify redirect chains.

Whenever you create a new project in WebSite Auditor (or rebuild an existing one), you will see if there are any long redirect chains on your site, right in the Site Audit module.

If any redirect chains are found, you'll see a list of pages the redirects originate from, along with the full redirect path — so you can quickly see what needs to be fixed and where.

Where to find it: Under Site Structure > Site Audit, in the Redirects section.
Find pages buried too deep on your site.

WebSite Auditor's new metric, Click Depth, lets you identify pages that are buried too deep on your site, and thus hard to find for users and search engines. Click Depth shows the number of clicks it takes to get to a given page from the home page. Ideally, all pages should be accessible at 4 clicks max to boost crawlability and avoid losing too much PageRank.

Where to find it: For new projects, a Click Depth column will be automatically added to the All pages workspace (in the Pages dashboard). For existing projects, you'll need to add it manually by right-clicking the header of any column.
Instantly spot slow loading pages.

When crawling your site, WebSite Auditor now also identifies pages that are too big and may negatively affect SEO and user experience. Page size is calculated comprehensively by adding the size of its HTML code to that of every resource used on the page, including images, videos, and JavaScript. If any of your pages could use some speed optimization, you'll find a list of their URLs right in the Site Audit dashboard along with each page's size in megabytes.

Where to find it: Under Site Structure > Site Audit, in the Encoding and technical factors section.
Crawl a site and all its subdomains.

If your site includes subdomains, the latest version of WebSite Auditor will let you conveniently crawl them along with your main domain, so you can audit and analyze all your pages and resources — and your site structure as a whole — in a single project.

Where to find it: If you are creating a new project, check the Show expert options box at Step 1, go to Advanced Options, and check the Crawl subdomains box. For an existing project, go to Preferences > Crawler Settings to do the same, and click Rebuild Project.
Crawl password-protected sites.

One of WebSite Auditor's most frequently requested features is finally out — the latest version of the tool lets you crawl and audit websites (or certain subdomains and directories) that require authentication, and optimize password-protected pages.

Where to find it: If you are creating a new project, check the Show expert options box at Step 1 and pick a bot. For an existing project, go to Preferences > Crawler Settings to do the same, and click Rebuild Project.
Stop overlooking site issues
that are hurting your rankings.

In our tests, the new WebSite Auditor identified over 30% more site issues than other popular SEO spiders, combined. That's why we're positive that even its free version will reveal issues you didn't know existed (but Google likely did), even if you last ran a site scan yesterday. Wanna bet?

If you already have the app installed, just fire it up, let it auto-update to version 4.16, and rebuild your project or create a new one. If you don't, just download WebSite Auditor's free version below to crawl up to 500 of any site's pages, or get a WebSite Auditor license for unlimited crawling. And please don't forget to tell us about the results you get in the comments below ;)

Happy auditing!
