Crawl Rate Tracker

Crawl Rate Tracker

June 20th, 2008 – 9 Comments

My friend Patrick Altoft and I were talking about his crawl rate tracker plugin yesterday, discussing some possible new features. He mentioned that it didn’t work on 2.5, more specifically, that the install failed on 2.5. Luckily, Mezza had e-mailed him a fix, I tested it for him and it proved to work.

Next to that fix I added some other stuff, first of which is tracking of Technoratibot, as you can see here:

Another new feature is the stats button per page. It adds a small button to the end of a post, to allow you to quickly access the bot statistics for that page. It looks like this:

    You can also check your crawl rate for Google and change the crawl rate in Google Webmaster Tools. This is a great way to see the errors that Google finds and search queries that your website ranks on as well.

    I’ve tried this tool last week but I didn’t get the results I wanted. I’m searching for a tool that combines these results with a graphical map that show the pages that are indexed versus the non-indexed pages.

    I love this plugin. A nice feature I would add to it IF i had the ability is a published/generated pages/posts graph, so I could compare the attention span of my blog to each crawler, and also detect indexing problems quickly.
