Summer is coming and we keep releasing new product updates! After our SEO trends, we have now added additional crawl behaviors to handle your projects. Moreover, your crawl settings design has been revamped in order to make it easier to setup, and you can deal with new crawl actions.
Let’s see what’s new:
Pause your crawl and restart it when you want
You can decide to pause a crawl whenever you want. You will then be able to relaunch it where you stop it. To do so, click on ‘ACTIONS..’ while your website is analyzed:
Then, click on ‘PAUSE CRAWL’.
Your crawl is now pausing.
If you go back to your projects, you will clearly see it:
Then you can whether resume your crawl or finish it. If you resume it, your crawl will keep crawling from where it stops. If you finish it, you will access a partial report.
Why would you like to pause a crawl ? If you want to only run your crawl during the night, you can pause it during the day for example. It can be convenient if our analysis is running for a few days.
You can also launch a crawl and see that you don’t have enough credits left. You can pause it and wait for your credits’ refund to get a complete report.
Stop your crawl and access a partial report
You can now also stop a crawl before it finishes. You will access a partial report of your performance and the credits you did not used will be reported on a next crawl.
You just need to click on ‘ACTIONS…’ and then ‘FINISH’.
Then, our crawler will be analyzing the URLs discovered and create a partial report.
Why should you want to stop your crawl before it ends? We now display current depth and new URLs discovered while we crawl your website. If your crawl is running for a few days and you realize that the depth is high with a few URLs discovered, you can decide to stop your crawl. You will access a partial report if you think it is not relevant to keep crawling.
Find new crawl settings
The way we set up your crawl configuration has evolved. When you fill out your start URL, we automatically configure your crawl settings.
You have either the ability to click on ‘Edit Settings’ and change as many parameters as you want and then save them or directly launch your crawl without any editing. Configuration goes from robots.txt to HTTP headers, subdomains and many more.
Then, click on ‘CONFIRM CRAWL CONFIG’ and then ‘LAUNCH A NEW CRAWL’. Customize your crawl as you wish!
We hope you will appreciate this new release. Feel free to drop us a line @OnCrawl_CS for any questions. You can also try it for free for 30 days!
