Identify Crawled URLs
View and analyse exactly which URLs Googlebot & other search bots are able to crawl, when and how frequently.
The Log File Analyser is light, but extremely powerful – able to process, store and analyse millions of lines of log file event data in a smart database. It gathers key log file data to allow SEOs to make informed decisions. Some of the common uses include –
Get insight to which search bots crawl most frequently, how many URLs are crawled each day and the total number of bot events.
Find temporary and permanent redirects encountered by search bots, that might be different to those in a browser or simulated crawl.
Analyse your most and least crawled URLs & directories of the site, to identify waste and improve crawl efficiency.
Review the average bytes downloaded & time taken to identify large pages or performance issues.
Import a list of URLs and match against log file data, to identify orphan or unknown pages or URLs which Googlebot hasn't crawled.
Import and match any data with a 'URLs' column against log file data. So import crawls, directives, or external link data for advanced analysis.
* The maximum number of log events you can analyse is dependent on hard drive capacity. Please see our FAQ.

The Screaming Frog Log File Analyser allows you to quickly upload a log file and analyse it from an SEO perspective. Log file data is extremely valuable as it shows exactly what has happened when a search engine bot visits your website. However, log files can be extremely large in size and difficult to analyse, without programming experience or the right tool. The Log File Analyser is specifically designed for SEOs to make this process less painful.
The Log File Analyser supports Apache and W3C Extended Log File Format which covers Apache, IIS and NGINX servers. Simply drag and drop your log file, or log files directly onto the user interface and the tool will automatically process the data to allow you to analyse and filter for common SEO issues in the program’s user interface, or export to CSV and Excel.
The free version of the Log File Analyser tool is free to download and use. However, this version is restricted to analysing 1k log events and it does not allow you to save more than one project at a time.
For just £99 per year you can purchase a licence, which removes the 1k log events limit and allows you to save multiple projects.
Alternatively hit the ‘buy a licence’ button in the Log File Analyser to buy a licence after downloading and trialling the software.
