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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
