Screaming Frog SEO Spider is an advanced desktop SEO auditing tool and website crawler, built by real SEOs with thousands of users worldwide. It allows you to quickly crawl websites’ URLs, resources (links, images, CSS, scripts) and fetch key onsite elements (URL, page title, meta descriptions, headings) to evaluate onsite SEO.
You can view, analyze and filter the crawl data as it’s gathered and updated continuously in the program’s user interface. The program presents the data in tabs by type and allows you to filter for common SEO issues, or slice and dice the data as you see fit by exporting and importing into Excel.
As default, the SEO Spider crawls sites like Googlebot (it obeys allow, disallow directives and wildcard support like Googlebot), but presents its own user-agent ‘Screaming Frog SEO Spider’, which it will obey specific directives for in robots.txt. If there are no directives, it will crawl your site like Googlebot. While still presenting its own UA.
Moreover, the program can connect to the Google Analytics API and fetch user data, such as sessions or bounce rate and conversions, goals, transactions, and revenue for landing pages against the crawl.
The Screaming Frog SEO Spider lite version is free to use for crawling up to 500 URLs in a single crawl (multiple websites allowed) and it does not give you full access to the configuration, saving of crawls, the custom source search or extraction features and Google Analytics integration.If you wish to unlock the 500 URL crawl limit and all the advanced features listed above you should purchase a license for £149 per year.
