About Search Engine Spider Simulator

Have you ever wondered what search engines see when they look at your website? There is actually a bit of information that search engines spiders do not see, and the way your website is viewed when indexed by search engines is very different than what you (or your website visitors) will see.

Therefore, it is important for you to know what a search engine spider will see, so that you can make sure it is getting all of the information it needs to properly rank you in searches. Looking at your website through this perspective can help you find flaws in your web design, as these flaws can prevent your website from being presented to targeted search engine users as a relevant result.

You can do this with our Search Engine Spider Simulation tool, which is free and only takes a moment to process!

How this tool works

By using the Search Engine Spider Simulator, you will be able to see even the page elements of your website that are hard to access. Because of this, you won’t have to keep on guessing how the bots or spiders see your website copies or landing pages when they try crawling on them.

Here is the gist of it: Basically, not all contents are actually visible for search engines. Some pieces of information, including but not limited to JavaScript-generated contents, flash-based contents and image-based contents, are not seen by spiders when they crawl your website. You need to make sure that the crawlers will find everything they need, and that no crucial information is only presented in those content types that are invisible to crawlers.

The tool is very easy for you to use. You simply need to input the URL of the web page that you would like to simulate, and then click 'submit.' You will get your results immediately. You will be shown the five different sections of data that crawlers see. First, your meta content, including the title and description. Then, your headers, H1 through H4. Then you will see a list of every indexable link found that spiders will crawl to from your web page. Fourth, you will see the actual, readable text content. And finally, you will see all of the source code that the spiders can look at.

These are each split off to keep everything neat and orderly. You can look through them one by one to make sure everything that is important is visible there somewhere to the crawlers.
