  • Link checker
  • SEO analysis
  • XML Sitemap generation, optionally include images / pdf pages
  • Page load speed test
  • Spelling and grammar checking
  • Scans sites requiring authentication
  • Search your site (source or visible text) obtain a list of pages containing a search term or not containing a search term
  • Website monitoring of as many URL’s as you like with a choice of alerts and logging
  • Scheduling made easy with a few easy clicks (the old method using iCal will still work)
  • On finish, send an email, save a report, open a file or applescript, FTP the sitemap XML, and other actions
  • Opens and scans a list of links in HTML, CSV, plain text format, or XML sitemap


Version 7.5.1:

  • Fixes issue with links not being found after self-closing script tag in body
  • Fixes issue with "img src-data=" causing a garbage link to be reported
  • Improvements to the way that pages are selected for the SEO results; the earlier method for avoiding duplicates may have caused some pages to have been incorrectly excluded
  • Some changes to the redirect chain functionality; the redirect chain count appeared in the SEO results, and still does because it's an important SEO issue; but the SEO table shows pages rather than links, and it's illogical to filter that table for redirect chains because pages don't have redirect chains, links do
  • So the 'redirect chain' option in the Filter list now offers to show the Links results, sorted by redirect count
  • Further improvements to engine; where HEAD method is used and 405 (method not allowed) is received, connection retried with GET
  • Adds ability to begin crawl at an xml sitemap where the sitemap is a sitemap index file which links together a number of xml sitemap files
  • More improvements to the new advanced options which will be helpful in a small number of cases
  • Where a timeout is encountered, Integrity will now invisibly retry once, in case it's a spurious or short-lived problem
  • Fixes bug with sitemap generation, if sitemap was large enough to need splitting into multiple files, one was being missed from the sitemap index file
  • Fixes bug affecting sitemap transfer (ftp)
