URL status codes checker and redirecting
Webdesign | Filip Podstavec
Quite often, there are situations when it is necessary to verify status codes on bigger number of URL, identify unnecessary redirects and redirect chains, if need be. 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.Step 1
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.
It is useful to give the report a name, by clicking on Dataset name that makes it easy to be identified. In case a user wants to save input dataset for future use for different purposes, they can check the box Save dataset.
By pushing this button, a user gets to the miners selection.Step 2
Miner selection and data collection
In the miner selection section, a user selects Status Code miner, which provides functioning side of the process and collects data for the user about URL status codes.
User then clicks on Get data, which will move them into data processing section. Based on data volume, they are processed in the background and once completed, results are emailed to a user.
|Keyword/URL||URL, from which a user was getting the status code|
|Status Code||Status code. In case of redirecting, the miner will record the transmitting in status codes and writes it in the cell|
An output can then be analyzed by the user with a use of tools that can work with XSLX outputs. We recommend these step-by-step instructions of analysis below:
