Configuration > Spider > Rendering
This configuration allows you to set the rendering mode for the crawl:
- Old AJAX Crawling Scheme: The SEO Spider will obey Google’s now deprecated AJAX Crawling Scheme if discovered. If not present, it will crawl the raw HTML like default ‘Text Only’ mode.
Please note: To emulate Googlebot as closely as possible our rendering engine uses the Chromium project. The following operating systems are supported:
- Windows 10
- Windows 8 & 8.1
- Windows 7
- Windows Server 2008 R2
- Windows Server 2012
- Windows Server 2016
- Ubuntu 14.04+ (64-bit only)
- Mac OS X 10.9+
Please note: If you are running a supported OS and are still unable to use rendering, it could be you are running in compatibility mode.
To check this, go to your installation directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Screaming Frog SEO Spider\), right click on ScreamingFrogSEOSpider.exe, select ‘Properties’, then the ‘Compatibility’ tab, and check you don’t have anything ticked under the ‘Compatibility Mode’ section.
