How SEO Spider works
To scan a site, simply select SEO Spider in the menu on the left, then click on the “make a new crawl” button at the top right: a tab will appear.
All you have to do is enter the URL of the site you want to scan, click on the “+ new scan” button and wait a couple of minutes for the crawler to analyze all the pages.
Once the project status is “completed” you can click anywhere on the tab to view the details.
This is the Overview screen: you will see the home from both mobile and desktop and you will be able to evaluate the overall SEO performance score of the domain. Thanks to the graph, you can see at a glance which aspects need to be improved.
Browsing the menu above, we can switch to Base. Here we find more in-depth analysis and, above all, advice on how to improve aspects such as the Snippet, meta descriptions, Title tags, and canonical and hreflang attributes.
Moving on to Structure, we can verify if the server has the file compression function enabled, which allows a much faster loading of our site; the presence of the robots.txt file, of the sitemap, of the https protocol; if the server has returned 404 errors; if the images have a correct alt attribute or if the ratio between text and code is optimal. Also, the SEO Spider will help you to identify the critical points and will provide you with suggestions on how to solve them.
In this section, you will analyze the textual content (paragraphs and titles) of the pages of your domain. In this case, the SEO Spider is telling us that 125 pages of our site do not have enough text content. Just click on “Open details” to view the related pages.
We have already mentioned the importance of duplicate contents management. By clicking on “Open details” you will see in detail which content on our site is repeated.
We have already discussed this topic in the overview. In this section, we will see in detail what to optimize our OpenGraph and TwitterCard.
In the menu on the left, you will be able to navigate the menu to view the individual components of each page grouped by section: therefore, we will have a section that groups all the site’s H1’s, all the meta descriptions, etc.
