Page Parameters


Where can I check my website’s pages characteristics?

For this purpose, you should go to the Page Parameters section. It provides you with comprehensive information about the website’s pages characteristics.

How can I set up the period of time for which the data will be shown?

By default, system shows data for the past month, but if you want to get information for another period – you can change the initial and end dates as you want.


How can I track the dynamics of changes in the number of scanned pages for the selected period?

The chart displays values of the specific parameters for the selected date range. Hover your mouse on any point of the chart to view data related to the particular date of the selected period. For more convenient data display you can switch on/off any of the parameters.


Which parameters do pages characteristics include ?

  • Recursive canonical. Shows number of pages which recursively refer to each other. For example, you have two pages: page1.html and page2.html. When page2.html has <link rel=”canonical” href=”page1.html” /> and page1.html has <link rel=”canonical” href=”page2.html” /> Google is confused which one of these two pages should be indexed. In this case, Google prefers not to index both pages.
