And for exactly this reason, there is Status Code Miner that gives user an output in the form of the list of status codes that it collected for imported URL. Miner simply downloads URL status code. In case of redirecting, it follows it and saves the transmitting in the cell at output.

Import of URLs that a user needs to get status codes for

The ideal input is either import of example URL from the clipboard, or an import of entire sitemap.

To import data, the user uses the section URL Miners,where he imports URL dataset using one of the methods of import.
