I've written extensively in the past about using various analytics tools to help with SEO. The reason is simple. Based on the number of audits I've done, I'd say you never really know what's going on with a large and complex site until you explore it . My two favorite tools for Phone Number List website crawling are DeepCrawl (where I'm a member of the Customer Advisory Board) and Screaming Frog. Both are great tools with valuable features. I generally use DeepCrawl for enterprise-level analytics, while I use Screaming Frog on small to medium-sized websites. I also use both together , because Phone Number Listv sometimes a business scan produces results that warrant a smaller surgical scan. So, for me, The sum of the combination of DeepCrawl with Screaming Frog is greater than its parts: 1 + 1 = 3. Both tools provide a wealth of data, but I've found that there are Phone Number List powerful and important reports that lie in the shadows. In this article, I'll quickly cover nine easy-to-miss crawl reports that offer a serious SEO boost. And two of these reports are part of DeepCrawl 2.0, which should be released soon (in the next few weeks). Let's start. Hidden Frog: Easy-to-Miss, But Powerful Screaming Frog Reports Redirect strings Most SEOs know that you should redirect old URLs to their newer counterparts during a website redesign or CMS migration. But I've seen too Phone Number List many people check the initial 301 redirect and stop looking. DON'T MAKE THIS MISTAKE. A 301 can lead to a 200 header response code, which is great. But it can also lead to a 404, which isn't great. Or it may lead to another 301, or five Phone Number List more 301s. Or maybe it leads to a 500 (application error). Just because a 301 URL redirects doesn't mean it resolves properly after the redirect . This is where Screaming Frog's Redirect Chains report shines. Be sure to check the “Always follow redirects” box in the settings, then crawl those old URLs (the ones that need to be redirected). redirect string parameters in Screaming Frog Phone Number List Screaming Frog will follow the redirects and then provide the full path of the initial redirect
