From feedback received by customers of TechSEO360 and its sibling tools, it appears that some Joomla installations utilize a crawler throttling system. This gives 403 Access Forbidden when crawling the Joomla website.

Here is a list of modules and settings to configure in Joomla:
  • Sh404SEF plugin (for SEO): Disable anti-flood configuration.

There are also various Joomla plugins that create duplicate URLs.
