A helpful and powerful utility for webmasters! For sites that
are simply constructed for their links, this rpsoft 2000 site crawler
can help with a number of common webmaster challenges, such as:
checking for reciprocal links, general site searches, email address
finding, meta tag help, external link count and keyword density.
Basic Limitations - Important
This bot (short for software robot) uses a fast html scan technique
rather than interpreting the code on the web page. Therefore it
will work for many sites (if simply constructed) but will not work on
all sites. The main issue here is on site scan or multi-site scan.
For site scan the sites must have their links to other pages done with
or other complexities. Of course, one could argue that one should
keep linkages simple, to ensure that search engine bots also can scan
the sites and give the sites and their link partners proper credit for
their popularity. Site crawler also works best on site scans of
main sites rather than a subdirectory within a main site.
How does all of this impact results? After many months of
software refinement we tested site-crawler on our own rpsoft 2000 links.
We were happy to see that it was over 97% accurate. By that we
mean that it found the links or accurately reported them missing 97% of
the time. Of course your results could differ if you choose to
link to sites with complex link structures. The most concerning
part to us in our test was that approximately 17% of the sites that had
agreed to us had dropped the link or simply gone off the air. That
was much higher than we expected to see. For future links, we have
decided to only link to sites with simpler link structures such that our
bot - and hopefully also the all important search engine bots - can find
the links. That we expect to bring us even higher accuracy in its usage.

Reciprocal Links Check for Link Exchange - a Super Time Saver
One of the biggest time savers of this program is looking for
reciprocal links on partner sites back to you. If you have done
link exchanges, you will have noticed that not all sites tell you what
page they have put your link on, and even if they did, may have to make
changes later to put your link on another page - perhaps due to
alphabetical order and the number of links that that site grows to.
And some sites have hundreds or even thousands of pages. Site
crawler can be sent to scan sites or multiple sites to look for your
links - and will follow the internal links within those sites - if those
links are constructed simply. The maximum number of pages can be
set in "options" but the overall maximum page scan per site is 5000
- Operating System: Windows systems 2000, or XP
- Search Types: word search (can be used to find links
also), email addresses
- Search Modes: web page, web site, or multiple web sites
- Other Primary Features: Meta Tag Help, External Link
Count (per page / per site) and Keyword Density (per page)
- Max Web Pages per site - can be set in "options", but 5000
is the absolute program maximum
- URLs Saved - up to 50 URLs can be saved after single entry
of each (number 50 or less set in options)
- Startup URL - can be set to your preferred site name.
Also, the startup "search word" can be set to your link needs
- Operator Intervention - "Halt" provided for all modes, and
"skip this site" available for multi site. Both of these
functions will be delayed slightly from the time of usage.
Detailed Features (assumes simple link construction on a site)
- Reciprocal Link Finder: Can scan simple web pages or
sites or multiple sites for reciprocal links. Note - since html
coders sometimes operate differently and may in fact add spaces, best
to keep link search to a single word or collection of characters
directly in a row such as
www.mysite.com or simply mysite (no spaces).
- General Site Search: Can scan simple web pages or
sites or multiple sites for simple search words. Note that searching
for reciprocal links is just a specific type of this general search
- Search for next occurrence? For single page or web
site mode, one may search for the next occurrence of the search word
also. This of course is not done in "multi" or automatic mode
when multiple sites are loaded.
- Email Finder: Can scan simple web pages or sites or
multiple sites looking for published emails. Please use this
only for legitimate contact needs and not for spam.
- Show Real HTML: Can display actual html on a page.
Note that some browsers will redirect or pull in "src" documents and
not simply show original and simple html for a page.
- Meta Tags: Can show meta tags on a page for title,
description and keywords and give an opinion as to their correct size.
It is possible to change the preferred size opinion within "options"
if you wish a different standard than the one preset for you.
- Sample Meta Tag: Can show a sample meta tag area for
those new at it
- Count External Links: Can show total external links on each
of your web pages. Some webmasters like to give a count of links
in each category. This is a big help for that. Also there
is a belief that going over 50 external links on a page will be
ignored by some search engines - so this counting can help safeguard
- Keyword Density: Can review your keywords listed in a
meta tag on a web page and tell you how many times each of those
keyword phrases appear on that page (best if phrases separated by
commas in keyword meta tag to facilitate this)
- Removing Links: Are you deleting a web page?
Use the site crawler to scan your own site looking for links to that
page you just eliminated to make sure no dead ends
- Multiple Modes: For searches - general, link or
email, it can search a single page, a web site, or multiple loaded
- Shortcut to Page: If you know on which page of a
partner site to look for your link, you can also load specific web
page urls for multi-site usage or for checking a single web page.
If the shortcut fails and the link has moved, search the whole site as
- Extensive options - that among other things allow you to
enter your own default web site name for startup, or give priority
searching certain pages over others or more
- Site Skip: Option to skip a single site manually -
during multi site operation - if it is going on longer than makes
sense. Sites that are skipped by the user are marked that way
- Stores Last Used URLs: yes if the urls are typed in
and options are saved (up to 50 URLs)
- Load and Save: Load and Save available for loading
multiple site lists for checking
While rpsoft 2000 site-crawler has a multi-site mode,
jams can occur given certain internet problems in responses. We
suggest that is using multi-mode to check sites in smaller groups and
save intermediate results so as to ensure less loss of data.
Yes, some limitations, and one must keep their own
site with simple links to take advantage of this fast html scan bot.
However, we find that it can save much much drudgery time on webmaster
functions. Even if it cannot scan all sites, any site that it
gives a fast answer on - is one that you do not need to check manually.
