Why do you need an SEO Log Analyzer?
One of the key functionalities of FandangoSEO is the SEO Log Analyzer.
SEO experts read the web server logs to understand the robot’s behavior on a 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 when we count with thousands and millions of lines.
That’s why we’ve created a tool to quickly explore what’s being found by the bots and understand how Google and other search engines interact with a website.
All you have to do is upload the log file to the log analyzer and start discovering if your SEO strategy is effective. 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.

How do I set up the log analyzer
To activate the Log Analyzer on FandangoSEO, you’ll need to have an M or L plan active, and the rest is very simple.
