From here you can see three groups of metrics, which will only show data if there have been past crawls of the sites:

Crawl Data

In this section we show some data about the crawls previously performed on sites.

URLs: This is the number of URLs crawled on the last crawl of the site, if there is no previous crawl it will show a hyphen.

Crawls: The number of times the site has been crawled (all time).

First Crawl Date: The date & time the site was first crawled (GMT).

Last Crawl Date: The date & time the site was last crawled (GMT).

 

Status Codes

In this section we show the number of URLs found returning status codes in the following groups:

Status 200: Accessible URLs

Status 3XX: Redirects

Status 4XX: Client error (inaccessible URLs)

Status 5XX: Server error (inaccessible URLs)

Other Status: All other status codes

 

File Types

In this section we show the number of URLs found based on their file type:

HTML/Text: Standard web page

XML: Typically, sitemaps

Image: Images!

CSS: Style sheets

Js: JavaScript

 

A Bit More About Crawling, URLs & Usage

You can crawl any number of URLs, in a month, up to and including the number stated as the limit for your pricing plan. Crawling sites uses up URLs until your limit is reached.

URLs are not just limited to standard HTML web pages, they can also include:

  • Images
  • CSS files
  • JS Files
  • PHP Files
  • Video Files
  • External links
  • Inaccessible Pages & Broken Links
    • 4XX error pages
    • 5XX error pages
  • Redirects
    • 301 Redirects
    • 302 Redirects
  • Canonical duplicates
    • www / non-www
    • http / https
    • with and without trailing slash
    • upper and lower case URL characters

 

Stay Tuned…

We are currently ramping up to launch a suite of analytics pages that will provide a deeper visual analysis of a site as well as competitor analysis data.
