An SEO Crawler is like a bot, allows the analysis of your website. It will read the content line by line and follow every link it finds, whether it is internal or external. It continues to do so until it reaches a page without a link or if it encounters an error such as a 404, a 403 or a 500 for example. From a technical point of view, an SEO crawler works with an initial list of URLs called “seed”. This list is then passed to a Fetcher which retrieves all the content of each URL it analyzes.
