How to use Screaming Frog for SEO?

Screaming Frog is a SEO crawler that makes analysing websites faster, easier, and more effective. The tool lets you find hidden pages, broken links, duplicate content, duplicate meta-titles and descriptions, and much more in just a few minutes. How? We'll show you in this knowledge base article. In this article, you will read what Screaming Frog is and how to use it for SEO. 

What is Screaming Frog?

Screaming frog is a website crawler that lets you analyse websites. It is a desktop programme that you need to download and install first. It is a very powerful tool that can be used to analyse websites quickly, easily and efficiently. The tool crawls your website, analyses it and lists everything it finds. This includes things like broken links, redirects, duplicate content, low-resolution images and so on. For us as SEO desk a tool like this works very nicely, as checking everything manually is very time-consuming. Want to know more? Then read our blog about the SEO-tools which we use.

Website modifications

You can use the data from the crawler to quickly and easily make adjustments to a website, which can have a big impact on a site's user experience and performance. For any SEO specialist, a tool like Screaming Frog is highly recommended. Especially for technical SEO and on-page SEO optimisations, the tool is very valuable. Also for SEO migrations we often use the tool. 

How to use Screaming Frog for SEO purposes?

Screaming Frog is a SEO crawler that can be used to perform an audit of a website. You can use this crawler to crawl your entire website, including all subdomains. You can also create a report that contains all the data and insights you need for your SEO strategy. This is a quick and efficient way to monitor your website. This can be done zonder technical knowledge. 

Website issues and peculiarities

All you need is the desktop version of the crawler. You then enter the url of your website. All issues/noteworthiness will then appear on the right. This is very valuable for a SEO specialist, because this person then immediately has an idea of what needs to be done. Hereonder you can see some issues with a random website. We often use tools like Google Search Console, Google Analytics, Ahrefs and Deepcrawl in addition to Screaming Frog.

Digital content manager Peugeot

Whether it's about content or technical adjustments, it doesn't matter. Martijn briefs this in a very clear way so that it can be implemented locally or by our head office in France. [...] Since the start of our collaboration, we have achieved great results. Keep it up!

Marien van Stegeren

Eigenaar Kitcentrum

When your online onder venture grows, expectations often grow too, in every area. To a large extent, we were in control of SEO and its interpretation ourselves. We found out that our own "general view" was no longer sufficient, so we engaged Bureau Onder. Surprising and clear. We have built up a fine collaboration, partly because Martijn also regularly visits our office with Eline or Mariska (depending on the case), which is very valuable to us!

Martijn and Mariska make the SEO story understandable for the layman and are happy to think along with us. It is nice that there is a personal contact moment every month with an extensive report and the opportunity to talk everything through. After just a few months, Onder has already managed to achieve number 1 positions on Google with some of our webshop pages. We are very satisfied with Onder.
