Why do you need an SEO Log Analyzer
One of the key functionalities of FandangoSEO is the SEO Log Analyzer. We know that SEO experts need to read the logs of your web server to understand the robot’s behavior on your website.
Therefore, our goal is to make things easier for both the search engines and the SEO specialists, as we acknowledge that reading log files isn’t easy at all when we count with thousands and millions of lines. That’s why we’ve created a tool that offers you the possibility to easily explore what’s being found by the bots, and understand how Google and other search engines interact with your website.
All you have to do is upload the log file to the log analyzer and start discovering if your SEO strategy is effective or still not. You can also use the comparison tool to contrast the log analyzer with the web crawler results and see what you must improve to deliver a well-optimized website.
