Getting started guide: part 2
In this article, we will go through the main tools and sections at Sitechecked.
All tools and sections are gathered on the left side:
- Projects list
- Site audit
- Site monitoring
- Rank tracker
- Backlink tracker
- Your account settings.
The projects list section is our homepage in-app. Here you can find all of the added projects. The project is a unique combo of the domain (or subdomain), language, and country settings.
In this section, you can have a quick look at the list of all your projects and see all the detected changes. This will include the data integrated from our internal tools (Site Audit, Site Monitoring, and Rank Tracker) and external ones (Google Search Console and Google Analytics).
It is accessible by clicking on the Sitechecker logo at the top left of your screen.
The more websites you have, the more convenient it is to track all of them on the same page.
This section contains all the main information about the project from the other tools in a brief manner. The main idea of this section is to give you the key information and help you to check everything at a glance.
Here you can find a lot of graphs most of which are set up automatically: they get data from Google Analytics, Search Console, and other tools available at Sitechecker. The only graph that you need to set up manually is the one with the keywords for your website.
We suggest starting your day by taking a look at your dashboard and seeing if everything is okay with your projects and how Sitechecker can help you to improve them.
This is the core tool of Sitechecker, which helps you to get a detailed SEO audit of your website. With this tool, you can locate errors and issues, which, if eliminated, will cause the quality of the website and SEO results to go up.
It’s a starting screen on which you can see high-level stats about your website’s issues and errors, quick info about the number of crawled and indexed pages along with your website score and the information about your hosting.
All the issues are divided into 4 main sections:
The Criticals and Warnings have an impact on your Website Score.
- Criticals (The issues that have a direct and crucial influence on your SEO)
- Warnings (Issues with a certain influence on your SEO, however, they have less value than Criticals )
The Notices and Opportunities do not influence your Website score in the Sitechecker app.
- Notices (These issues are rather recommendations. They can help you to improve user experience, optimize your website, and format it accordingly to the general rules )
- Opportunities (These checks are meant to even better improve the website and smooth the look of your pages and UX )
Apart from that, we also have categories below, that will help you to better understand and sort all the issues by their influence on the website.
Along with that, there is a quick statistics with the percentage of the affected URLs by each category.
It’s your main screen for working with issues and fixing them.
After you decide what issue you would like to fix at first, click on the “View issue” button and you will see all the pages affected by a specific issue or a filter (as an example, we will take the “H1 has other tags inside” filter.). As soon as we are on the page with all the issues of the particular category, you can click on the “View issue in code” button and you will see where exactly this issue is located in the source code of the URL.
The “View issue in code” button may change its name depending on the type of the issue. For example, if the issue is about duplicates, it will have the name “See duplicates” and show you where these duplicates are located.
On a page details screen, you see an in-depth analysis of specific pages on your website based on parameters such as:
All the technical SEO issues we have found on this page, general information about URL, its content, images, display in Google SERP, image alt attributes, all external and internal links, Google score for usability and speed on desktop, and mobile versions, and more.
In addition to this tool, we have created a plugin available for Google Chrome.
With the help of this plugin, you can start the audit of the page that is active in your tab right now. If you click on the plugin icon, the audit of this page will open up in a new tab.
This tool monitors your website and shows you the feed/chart of the changes which occurred, as well as sends you notifications about them so that you can quickly check if anything important has happened.
Site Monitoring is especially handy and convenient if your website is constantly changing, and third-party contractors are working on it.
Site Monitoring is also useful to add the website of your competitor and monitor what pages are being deleted, on which they are working, and how the structure of the website is being changed.
P.S. We strongly suggest setting up email notifications, so you get digests about website changes and you were always up to date.
This tool helps you to track search positions for specific keywords you’ve entered. The main goal is to show insides and trends, which are not available on Google Search Console. To achieve this, Rank Tracker parses search results for keywords that you enter.
For example, Rank Tracker helps me:
- See search positions filtered by day on one page.
- See what words were left out of Google Search Console.
- Get a piece of knowledge about changes in search result position even before it displays in Google Search Console.
- Filter out keywords that go up or go down.
Also, you can investigate how the search results changed (SERP) by certain keywords. This data can help to see what competitors achieve growth and investigate their strategy.
This tool helps you to monitor important backlinks of your choice. This solves an age-old question of when you received an important link and it somehow disappeared. We know that this happens really often. The Backlink tracker helps you to see that the link is missing and you can contact the webmaster or somebody who has direct influence and get it back on the website.
At the bottom of the left sidebar, you have your personal settings.
Here you can see your subscription plan, and limits for every tool and you can also set up your personal data, like email, password, notifications, logo for reports, as well as some contact details that are used for invoicing. There you can set up the notifications for your account and generate Sitechecker.pro widget.
You can also download invoices, subscribe to a bigger package or cancel your subscription.
To sum it up. Sitechecker will help you to:
- Find and fix issues with Site Audit and On-Page Checker
- Keep up with all website changes and updates with Site Monitoring
- Track my most important keywords and get trends with Rank Tracker
- Never lose links that I have with Backlink Tracking
Thus, your traffic will grow and you will see improvements in your sales accordingly.
