Websites with Domain Mirrors or Multiple Root Path Urls

While usually not recommended because of duplicate content issues, some websites mix domains, links and www and non-www usage in URLs. In such cases, after configuring the site root to be scanned, which is usually the primary domain, make a list af root aliases.

The Website Root Path and How It Affects Crawling

If you use http://example.com/blogs/ as root, all paths outside (excluding root path aliases) such as e.g. http://example.com/forum/ will neither be included in output nor for analysis.

A better alternative might be to keep the website root as http://example.com/, and start using analysis filters and output filters to control your website crawl and resulting output.


Scan Websites From Multiple Start Search Paths

Websites with site areas that have no incoming links from within the rest of the website can sometimes cause a problem.

Remember that crosslinking hidden pages will not help if none of them are linked from anywhere else in the website.

This problem can easily be overcome in our website analyzer software. It is possible to start a website scan from multiple paths in addition to website directory root.

Note: It is often better to make sure your website is cross linked, so crawlers can find all pages on their own.
