This new and improved website auditor provides much more information on a given site than ever before, and it can scan a site much faster as well. This site auditor will allow you to analyze every web page on a site, using metrics such as loading time, word count, image count, page size, inbound links, outbound links, HTTP status codes, and text to HTML ratio.
Any of these metrics can be used as your sorting criteria so that you can quickly identify issues with any specific page, or so you can organize your data by page health or by a raw score. Here are some of the other capabilities you’ll enjoy when using this revamped website auditor.
Lots more dashboards
A number of new dashboards have been added since we’ve provided a whole range of new metrics that can be used to analyze data. You’ll also notice that the layout is much more intuitive so that it’s far easier to navigate through all of the data. The first dashboard you will see is the Tests dashboard, which displays an overview of the website. That will include the overall audit score as well as a page depth score, and a breakdown of all tests, whether they’ve passed or failed tests. By clicking on any individual test on the dashboard, you’ll be able to see a whole list of webpages that have the issue you selected.
Some brand-new reporting options have been included in this version of our website auditor. Everything which is available on dashboards can also be added to your reports. You’ll have the capability of adding site audit results to any report you choose in a matter of seconds. You’ll also be able to add pages which have test overviews, or which display an audit history so that you can observe improvements over a specific time frame.
With this new updated version of our website auditor, you won’t have to wait to see results. Instead, all audited data will be displayed live, just as it comes in. Auditing dashboards will be updated as your site is scanned, and this will allow you to begin tackling any issues at the earliest possible moment.
One of the best ways of identifying improvements in your website is to show some historical context. In this new version, you’ll be able to browse audits from the past and compare them with results from a current scan. The level of detail which is provided will give you a good handle on how your current version compares to any previous version. It will also allow you to track any changes which have occurred over time, especially in the number of issues and the type of issues that were detected. You’ll also be informed about any changes in the scores of your website audits, so you will be aware of the level of improvement.
