Working With the Results
Another thing I like about Link-Assistant Products is the familiar interface between all 4 of their products. If you saw are other reviews, you are familiar with the results pane below.
Before that, Free Website Auditor 2017 will ask you about getting more factors. When I do the initial crawl I do not include stuff that will cause captchas or require proxies, like cache dates and PR. But here, you can update and add more factors if you wish:
Once you click that, you are brought to the settings page and give the option to add more factors, I’ve specifically highlighted the social ones:
I’ll skip these for now and go back to the initial results section. This displays your initial results and I’ve also highlighted all the available options with colored arrows:
Your arrow legend is as follows:)
- Orange – You can save the current project or all projects, start a new project, close the project, or open another project
- Green – you can build an white-labeled Optimization report (with crawl, domain, link, and popularity metrics plugged in), Analyze a single page for on-page optimization, Update a workspace or selected pages or the entire project for selected factors, Rebuild the report with the same pages but different factors, or create an XML sitemap for selected webpages.
- Yellow – Search for specific words inside the report (I use this for narrowing down to a topic)
- Red – Create and update Work spaces to customize the results view.
Give Free Website Auditor 2017 a Try
There are other desktop on-page/crawling tools on the market and some of them are quite good. I like some of the features inside of Website Auditor (report outputting, custom crawl parameters, social aspects) enough to continue using it in 2012.
I’ve asked for clarification on this but I believe their Live Plan (which you get free for the first 6 months) must be renewed in order for the application to interact with a search engine.
I do hope they consider changing that. I understand that some features won’t work once a search engine changes something, and that is worthy of a charge, but tasks like pulling a ranking report or executing a site crawl shouldn’t be lumped in with that.
Nonetheless, I would still recommend the product as it’s a good product and the support is solid but I think it’s important to understand the pricing upfront. You can find pricing details here for both their product fees and their Live Plan fees.
