Get Insights Faster

Errors in crawl waste valuable time that could be better spent analyzing complete, accurate data insights.

Settings Pre-Check offers two helpful safeguards against launching an incomplete crawl. First, Botify verifies that the starting point of your SEO analysis is valid. Second, we check to see if a Sitemap file is available on site to be added to the crawl settings.

Save time by validating your settings in advance to be sure that:

  • The start URL is retrievable
  • A start URL is not a redirection
  • A start URL is compatible with the robots.txt of the website
  • A start URL has valid links
  • All links within a start URL are compatible with the robots.txt
  • All links within a start URL are compatible with the allowed domains

To ensure a complete crawl, Botify automatically detects if:

  • A Sitemap file is available
  • The Sitemap URL returns a HTTP 200 status code
  • The Sitemap URL can be found within the robots.txt file (and retrieved)
