Screaming Frog SEO Spider Update – Version 14.0

Screaming Frog SEO Spider Update – Version 14.0

We are pleased to launch Screaming Frog SEO Spider version 14.0, codenamed internally as ‘megalomaniac’.

Since the release of version 13 in July, we’ve been busy working on the next round of features for version 14, based upon user feedback and as always, a little internal steer.

Let’s talk about what’s new in this release.

1) Dark Mode

While arguably not the most significant feature in this release, it is used throughout the screenshots – so it makes sense to talk about first. You can now switch to dark mode, via ‘Config > User Interface > Theme > Dark’.

Dark Mode

Not only will this help reduce eye strain for those that work in low light (everyone living in the UK right now), it also looks super cool – and is speculated (by me now) to increase your technical SEO skills significantly.

The non-eye-strained among you may notice we’ve also tweaked some other styling elements and graphs, such as those in the right-hand overview and site structure tabs.

2) Google Sheets Export

You’re now able to export directly to Google Sheets.

Google Sheets Exports

You can add multiple Google accounts and connect to any, quickly, to save your crawl data which will appear in Google Drive within a ‘Screaming Frog SEO Spider’ folder, and be accessible via Sheets.

Exports in Google Sheets

Many of you will already be aware that Google Sheets isn’t really built for scale and has a 5m cell limit. This sounds like a lot, but when you have 55 columns by default in the Internal tab (which can easily triple depending on your config), it means you can only export around 90k rows (55 x 90,000 = 4,950,000 cells).

If you need to export more, use a different export format that’s built for the size (or reduce your number of columns). We had started work on writing to multiple sheets, but really, Sheets shouldn’t be used in that way.

This has also been integrated into scheduling and the command line. This means you can schedule a crawl, which automatically exports any tabs, filters, exports or reports to a Sheet within Google Drive.

You’re able to choose to create a timestamped folder in Google Drive, or overwrite an existing file.

Google Sheets Exporting in Scheduling

This should be helpful when sharing data in teams, with clients, or for Google Data Studio reporting.

3) HTTP Headers

You can now store, view and query full HTTP headers. This can be useful when analysing various scenarios which are not covered by the default headers extracted, such as details of caching status, set-cookie, content-language, feature policies, security headers etc.

You can choose to extract them via ‘Config > Spider > Extraction’ and selecting ‘HTTP Headers’. The request and response headers will then be shown in full in the lower window ‘HTTP Headers’ tab.

HTTP Headers

The HTTP response headers also get appended as columns in the Internal tab, so they can be viewed, queried and exported alongside all the usual crawl data.

Headers can also be exported in bulk via ‘Bulk Export > Web > All HTTP Headers’.

4) Cookies

You can now also store cookies from across a crawl. You can choose to extract them via ‘Config > Spider > Extraction’ and selecting ‘Cookies’. These will then be shown in full in the lower window Cookies tab.


You’ll need to use JavaScript rendering mode to get an accurate view of cookies, which are loaded on the page using JavaScript or pixel image tags.

The SEO Spider will collect cookie name, value, domain (first or third party), expiry as well as attributes such as secure and HttpOnly.

This data can then be analysed in aggregate to help with cookie audits, such as those for GDPR via ‘Reports > Cookies > Cookie Summary’.

Cookie Summary report

You can also highlight multiple URLs at a time to analyse in bulk, or export via the ‘Bulk Export > Web > All Cookies’.

Please note – When you choose to store cookies, the auto exclusion performed by the SEO Spider for Google Analytics tracking tags is disabled to provide an accurate view of all cookies issued.

This means it will affect your analytics reporting, unless you choose to exclude any tracking scripts from firing by using the Exclude configuration (‘Config > Exclude’) or filter out the ‘Screaming Frog SEO Spider’ user-agent similar to excluding PSI in this FAQ.

5) Aggregated Site Structure

The SEO Spider now displays the number of URLs discovered in each directory when in directory tree view (which you can access via the tree icon next to ‘Export’ in the top tabs).

This helps better understand the size and architecture of a website, and some users find it more logical to use than traditional list view.

Directory Tree Children Count

Alongside this update, we’ve improved the right-hand ‘Site Structure’ tab to show an aggregated directory tree view of the website. This helps quickly visualise the structure of a website, and identify where issues are at a glance, such as indexability of different paths.

Site Structure Tab

If you’ve found areas of a site with non-indexable URLs, you can switch the ‘view’ to analyse the ‘indexability status’ of those different path segments to see the reasons why they are considered as non-indexable.

Indexability Status

You can also toggle the view to crawl depth across directories to help identify any internal linking issues to areas of the site, and more.

Aggregated Crawl Depth

This wider aggregated view of a website should help you visualise the architecture, and make better decisions for different sections and segments.

6) New Configuration Options

We’ve introduced two new significant configuration options – ‘Ignore Non-Indexable URLs for On-Page Filters’ and ‘Ignore Paginated URLs for Duplicate Filters’.

These are both enabled by default via ‘Config > Spider > Advanced’, and will mean non-indexable pages won’t be flagged in appropriate on-page filters for page titles, meta descriptions, or headings.

Advanced configuration

This means URLs won’t be considered as ‘Duplicate’, or ‘Over X Characters’ or ‘Below X Characters’ if for example they are noindex, and hence non-indexable. Paginated pages won’t be flagged for duplicates either.

If you’re crawling a staging website which has noindex across all pages, remember to disable these options.

These options are a little different to the ‘respect‘ configuration options, which remove non-indexable URLs from appearing at all. Non-indexable URLs will still appear in the interface, they just won’t be flagged for relevant issues.

Other Updates

Version 14.0 also includes a number of smaller updates and bug fixes, outlined below.

  • There’s now a new filter for ‘Missing Alt Attribute’ under the ‘Images’ tab. Previously missing and empty alt attributes would appear under the singular ‘Missing Alt Text’ filter. However, it can be useful to separate these, as decorative images should have empty alt text (alt=””), rather than leaving out the alt attribute which can cause issues in screen readers. Please see our How To Find Missing Image Alt Text & Attributes tutorial.
  • Headless Chrome used in JavaScript rendering has been updated to keep up with evergreen Googlebot.
  • ‘Accept Cookies’ has been adjusted to ‘Cookie Storage‘, with three options – Session Only, Persistent and Do Not Store. The default is ‘Session Only’, which mimics Googlebot’s stateless behaviour.
  • The ‘URL’ tab has new filters available around common issues including Multiple Slashes (//), Repetitive Path, Contains Space and URLs that might be part of an Internal Search.
  • The ‘Security‘ tab now has a filter for ‘Missing Secure Referrer-Policy Header’.
  • There’s now a ‘HTTP Version’ column in the Internal and Security tabs, which shows which version the crawl was completed under. This is in preparation for supporting HTTP/2 crawling inline with Googlebot.
  • You’re now able to right click and ‘close’ or drag and move the order of lower window tabs, in a similar way to the top tabs.
  • Non-Indexable URLs are now not included in the ‘URLs not in Sitemap’ filter, as we presume they are non-indexable correctly and therefore shouldn’t be flagged. Please see our tutorial on ‘How To Audit XML Sitemaps‘ for more.
  • Google rich result feature validation has been updated inline with the ever-changing documentation.
  • The ‘Google Rich Result Feature Summary’ report available via ‘Reports‘ in the top-level menu, has been updated to include a ‘% eligible’ for rich results, based upon errors discovered. This report also includes the total and unique number of errors and warnings discovered for each Rich Result Feature as an overview.

That’s everything for now, and we’ve already started work on features for version 15. If you experience any issues, please let us know via support and we’ll help.

Thank you to everyone for all their feature requests, feedback, and continued support.

Now, go and download version 14.0 of the Screaming Frog SEO Spider and let us know what you think!

Small Update – Version 14.1 Released 7th December 2021

We have just released a small update to version 14.1 of the SEO Spider. This release is mainly bug fixes and small improvements –

  • Fix ‘Application Not Responding’ issue which affected a small number of users on Windows.
  • Maintain Google Sheets ID when overwriting.
  • Improved messaging in Force-Directed Crawl Diagram scaling configuration, when scaling on items that are not enabled (GA etc).
  • Removed .xml URLs from appearing in the ‘Non-Indexable URLs in Sitemap’ filter.
  • Increase the size of Custom Extraction text pop-out.
  • Allow file name based on browse selection in location chooser.
  • Add AMP HTML column to internal tab.
  • Fix crash in JavaScript crawling.
  • Fix crash when selecting ‘View in Internal Tab Tree View’ in the the Site Structure tab.
  • Fix crash in image preview details window.

Small Update – Version 14.2 Released 16th February 2021

We have just released a small update to version 14.2 of the SEO Spider. This release includes a couple of cool new features, alongside lots of small bug fixes.

Core Web Vitals Assessment

We’ve introduced a ‘Core Web Vitals Assessment’ column in the PageSpeed tab with a ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ using field data collected via the PageSpeed Insights API for Largest Contentful Paint, First Input Delay and Cumulative Layout Shift.

Core Web Vitals Assessment

For a page to ‘pass’ the Core Web Vital Assessment it must be considered ‘Good’ in all three metrics, based upon Google’s various thresholds for each. If there’s no data for the URL, then this will be left blank.

This should help identify problematic sections and URLs more efficiently. Please see our tutorial on How To Audit Core Web Vitals.

Broken Bookmarks (or ‘Jump Links’)

Bookmarks are a useful way to link users to a specific part of a webpage using named anchors on a link, also referred to as ‘jump links’ or ‘anchor links’. However, they frequently become broken over time – even for Googlers.

To help with this problem, there’s now a check in the SEO Spider which crawls URLs with fragment identifiers and verifies that an accurate ID exists within the HTML of the page for the bookmark.

You can enable ‘Crawl Fragment Identifiers’ under ‘Config > Spider > Advanced’, and then view any broken bookmarks under the URL tab and new ‘Broken Bookmark’ filter.

Broken Bookmarks

You can view the source pages these are on by using the ‘inlinks’ tab, and export in bulk via a right click ‘Export > Inlinks’. Please see our tutorial on How To Find Broken Bookmark & Jump Links.

14.2 also includes the following smaller updates and bug fixes.

  • Improve labeling in all HTTP headers report.
  • Update some column names to make more consistent – For those that have scripts that work from column naming, these include – Using capital case for ‘Length’ in h1 and h2 columns, and pluralising ‘Meta Keywords’ columns from singular to match the tab.
  • Update link score graph calculations to exclude self referencing links via canoncials and redirects.
  • Make srcset attributes parsing more robust.
  • Update misleading message in visualisations around respecting canonicals.
  • Treat HTTP response headers as case insensitive.
  • Relax Job Posting value property type checking.
  • Fix issue where right click ‘Export > Inlinks’ sometimes doesn’t export all the links.
  • Fix freeze on M1 mac during crawl.
  • Fix issue with Burmese text not displayed correctly.
  • Fix issue where Hebrew text can’t be input into text fields.
  • Fix issue with ‘Visualisations > Inlink Achor Text Word Cloud’ opening two windows.
  • Fix issue with Forms Based Auth unlock icon not displaying.
  • Fix issue with Forms Based Auth failing for sites with invalid certificates.
  • Fix issue with Overview Report showing incorrect site URL in some situations.
  • Fix issue with Chromium asking for webcam access.
  • Fix issue on macOS where launching via a .seospider/.dbseospider file doesn’t always load the file.
  • Fix issue with Image Preview incorrectly showing 404.
  • Fix issue with PSI CrUX data being duplicated in Origin.
  • Fix various crashes in JavaScript crawling.
  • Fix crash parsing some formats of HTML.
  • Fix crash when re-spidering.
  • Fix crash performing JavaScript crawl with empty user agent.
  • Fix crash selecting URL in master view when all tabs in details view are disabled/hidden.
  • Fix crash in JavaScript crawling when web server sends invalid UTF-8 characters.
  • Fix crash in Overview tab.

  • Show the display URL for duplicate content reports rather than the URL encoded URL.
  • Update right click ‘History >’ checks to be HTTPS.

    These are great changes!

    Exporting to google sheets will significantly improve the comfort of working on a project by several people at once.
    Thanks to header support I can get rid of several plugins in my browser:

    And have you planned to support the command line for the dbstorage version in version 15.0?

  • Jean-Nicolas Girard 4 years ago

    So much work to help us better understand the structure of a website.

    And the new feature to store cookies and helps us audit for compliance is a must have feature… No need of an external tool now!

  • Johannes Faupel 4 years ago

    Screaming Frog makes my daily work much easier – with the quick overview of title tags, internal linking and the clear technical presentation of the websites. And now this new development step. Thank you for your good work!

  • Kyle Starkey 4 years ago

    All great additions. I can’t help but be the most excited about dark mode… .

  • Martin 4 years ago

    Hi, is it possible, that you integrate the most common regex expressions to the search field?
    I find myself always feelin like “Dear regex god, please show me only entries, which do NOT have the words “huge seo success” in it.

    I guess I am not the only one for this.


    • screamingfrog 4 years ago

      Cheers for the suggestion, Martin.

      Yeah, we plan on giving the search function a bit of an overhaul. It’s on the list :-)

  • Kyle Starkey 4 years ago

    I would love to see the export to google sheets in scheduling to a selected folder in drive. This would make connecting crawls to Google Data Studio 90% automated. Not sure how you would show previous crawls if overwritten though to show graphs of all the work I’m doing :).

    • Evgeniy 4 years ago

      That was my first question too:)
      I will do this with setting “overwrite files in output” and removing data from actual sheet into other sheet with this GSheets addon:

      • screamingfrog 4 years ago

        Good suggestion! We can potentially do that, at the moment we just export to the ‘Screaming Frog SEO Spider’ folder.

        You can either overwrite, or create a timestamped folder.

        We’re waiting on more feedback from users on what they want, and we’ll update further.


        • Evgeniy 4 years ago

          The method i mentioned will not work – this addon acts only inside of the same document between different tabs. I see now just a single way to create Data Studio reports fully automatically – two conditions must be fulfilled for this:
          1. Exported data must be appended to the same Google Sheet,
          2. Appended data must be written with a timestamp
          Until you add this function, i’ll write a helper Google App script :)

        • Ciprian 2 years ago

          I would love to use Google drive for crawling save without make a Google cloud account. Can may be possible this? of course this one you suggest is very good “I would love to see the export to google sheets in scheduling to a selected folder in drive”. Thank you.

  • Kickboxing gloves 4 years ago

    Great software

  • Stelios 4 years ago

    Great features indeed! However, I’d still want to see easier filtering. Don’t get me wrong SF is a great tool but the fact that I have to learn regex to filter things out is a bummer to me.

    We use SF for its great features which help us root problems faster why not search and filter faster as well? Especially now that you support Google sheets we should be able to extract what we nees in specific rather than export and then filter.

    Sitebulb is already there, and yet SF is better by far.

    • screamingfrog 4 years ago

      Cheers for the thoughts, Stelios. Agree with you, we have this on the ‘todo’ for development.

  • Luci 4 years ago

    The dark mode is super cool!

  • Rodanet 4 years ago

    We love it! Without a doubt one of the most excellent SEO tools anywhere in the world.

  • Miguel 4 years ago

    The dark mode is super cool!

  • Domenic Konszack 4 years ago

    This is really cool news. Thanks a lot. We use Screaming Frog via a root server. The schedulable execution with the new Google Sheet allows many new ideas. Automatic Google presentations, task collection for URls, DataStudio and certainly much more. I am looking forward to the implementation.

  • Мария Маркина 4 years ago

    please update table template for data studio for version 14. new app looks cool❤

  • Viktor Ivanov 4 years ago

    Thank you for bringing the dark mode on to Screaming Frog. It really helps with all the hours staring into the good data you provide!

  • Naturel 3 years ago

    Hi there, I just loved the dark mode of your software. I often work at night so it’s so much pleasurable to be able to use the dark version. My eyes don’t get too tired. It looks like you read my mind. Thanks for that


  • Kirill 3 years ago

    Very good update with many new usefull features. Nice work!

    for me:
    1) 14.0 crashes on EVERY crawl overview report saving (no matter excel, csv). Program saving report and just closing. Over reports are OK. (Both Diskstorage and Memory).
    2) Program stop responding very often while crawling. So need to close process in task manager and restart SF to continue crawl. 13.2 worked perfectly with no such trouble at all. Windows 7 Pro, Diskstorage mode + external SSD via USB 2.0 now + memory 6-8GB. Problem is not related to the size of crawl and may stop responding at the very begining or later on. In fact need to continue follow and check all time.
    3) When Restart (resume) after crash i see, that chart and table of crawl depth is nulled.
    And Summary at the top of the right window is populated with wrong numbers (it was the problem in 13.2 too).
    Is it nown bugs or any quick advice?

    Thanks in advance

    • screamingfrog 3 years ago

      Hi Kirill,

      Thank you, glad you like the update. On each of your issues –

      1 & 2) Please can you send over your logs? Help > Debug > Save Logs

      3) Will see if we can replicate here, but it would be good to sort the crash out for you.

      4) Are you able to save over your saved crawl file with this data? It doesn’t make sense that total URLs encountered is lower than ‘Response Codes > All’. We’ve not seen this before!



      • Kirill 3 years ago

        Hello, Dan!

        I was already worried about my comment, as it disappeared a few minutes after publication.

        It seems that the situation with Not Responds is not just for me. See the comment below from Stefani.
        In a situation like Stefani, I close the application and then restart the SF and continue the interrupted scan as I am working in the save-to-disk mode. If I work in RAM mode, it will not be possible to complete the crawling at all.

        ” 4) Are you able to save over your saved crawl file with this data? It doesn’t make sense that total URLs encountered is lower than ‘Response Codes > All’. – Yes, the file is saved and the scanning depth data shows ridiculous numbers for the number of URLs encountered. Well, at least the report is saved, albeit with errors )

        • screamingfrog 3 years ago

          Hi Kirill,

          Comments go into moderation and I have to approve each one.

          If you pop us an email, we’ve worked out what Stefani’s issue is and have given her a beta :-) So if you have the same issue, it’s fixed.

          On 4) Apologies, I meant ‘are you able to send over your saved crawl file with this data?’.

          When you email us via support, send over the crawl so we can take a look at that specific issue where the numbers don’t match up.



  • Stefani 3 years ago


    Since the new version, Screaming Frog can’t seem to complete the crawl of my website. Never had this issue before. It gets between 10 and 25% of the way and then freezes (and says Not Responding). Any advice?

  • Andrea 3 years ago

    Great new features, exporting in Google Sheets will make my daily tasks way faster. No doubt this is one of the greatest tools for SEO!

  • Marco 3 years ago

    I love the Dark Mode. Great Software!!

  • Alireza 3 years ago

    When will the optimized version of Screaming Frog for M1 chip come out? and know it can run on Rosetta2?

  • Kirill 3 years ago

    Hey, Dan!
    Thanks for 14.1 fix Not Reponding issue!
    Crawled a site and found an issue as i think: jpeg with non ASCII file name has 200 status but in the bottom tab Image Details it shows unable to display Image with 404 error Reason. I think some bug out there. Crawled with java, ignore robots.txt (for info)

    Image Details bottom tab screenshot:
    URL details bottom tab screenshot:

    • screamingfrog 3 years ago

      Cheers, Kirill – Glad that fixed it.

      The image preview issue appears to be a Window specific, as it works on MacOS. Thanks for letting us know, we’ll fix up.


  • Jaydip Parikh 3 years ago

    The Google Sheets is the master stroke, This feature added tremendous value to the product. What other feature are coming soon? Sorry to ask silly question but is anything we can automate from the tool?

  • Kirill 3 years ago

    Hey, Dan!
    Strange Structured Data validation error result in 14.1
    Last breadcrumb has no link to click (empty @id) and it looks “name” of the last item went to first element of the list basing of the base href of the page
    Just my guess

    • screamingfrog 3 years ago

      Hi Kirill,

      Please can you send through any possible bugs or specifics like this to

      We have a team inbox where we can look into specific scenarios. It also means you can share URLs in the email (rather than an image of a URL which I always dread ;-)).

      We can then reply in detail to issues, and keep you updated with any fixes as necessary.

  • Lord Marin 3 years ago

    Hi! Just wanted to know where the “Directives” dropdown went to after the update? I can’t seem to find it now in v14. It was after Pagination and before Hreflang. Thanks!

    • screamingfrog 3 years ago

      It’s still there, but you can right click on tabs and ‘close’, so it sounds like that’s perhaps what you have done.

      You can use the ‘+’ picker to the right hand side of all the top tabs to add it back, or go to ‘Config > User Interface > Reset Tabs’ and it will reappear.



  • Chris 3 years ago

    Hi there, Just want to thank you guys for screaming frog. Despite its name being really catchy the software works great for me. Without any doubts one of the “must have” program for me! Cheers

  • Yvette Boye 3 years ago

    Hi Screaming Frog,
    Yvette from Norway here. I am new to your site. Would very much learn to use your tool and build SEO reports. Thinking about client reports with nice visual results from analyzing a website. Is this something should use the data from Screaming Frog to make, or is there a template or other tools for this?

  • Gilbert 3 years ago

    Love the dark mode.

  • Mansi Rana 3 years ago

    Thanks for keeping us with the latest update. I am using this tool over the last few years and just one word “Awesome”.

    Thanks for this informative and valuable update. I have been using this tool since last few years and it has been an awesome experience. However, I wish there must be an option for fetching all the reports in a go like the tailor-made report.

  • HDC 3 years ago

    Whenever I try to download the SEO Spider, all the text is jumbled together and unreadable. If I highlight the text and copy + paste, then I can see the actual English text. Not sure what is going on with that…

    Yeah…dark mode finally :D I was looking forward those new configuration options. Great features.

  • Undeci 3 years ago

    In some tutorials, writers referring to “internal_html.xlsx/csv”.

  • Karan Dhall 3 years ago

    Amazing update indeed. Screaming Frog SEO Spider is a solid crawler with a lot of options. I often use it for technical SEO audits, checks, and QA. Was using its free version when I was new to the SEO game. Recently upgraded to a premium one. Must say it is worth it. Can’t wait to try the dark theme ;)

  • Atheem 3 years ago

    Great new features, but while Exporting file bit slower the app

  • Sam 3 years ago

    Amazing features, dark mode is really great

  • IELTS 3 years ago

    It may not be a very key issue, but the implementation of the dark mode has made working on Screaming Frog very pleasant and comfortable. After switching to the dark mode, I can’t imagine going back to the previous mode. You’ve done a great job on this. Besides, functionality. I am impressed with how quickly and dynamically this tool is developing. I do not hide that one of my favorites.

  • Vikas Shrivastav 3 years ago

    Thanks for keeping us with the newest update. i’m using this tool over the previous couple of years and only one word “Awesome”.

    Great SEO software and happy with the improvements. One of the seo tools that still has an reasonable subscription price while offering the full package.

  • Brent 3 years ago

    I cannot get the program to even open on Windows 10. It worked several months ago but now the program won’t even open. I click the icon to launch and it simply never launches and eventually Windows asks if I want to keep waiting on the program to load. Disappointing for sure. I’ve even uninstalled and reinstalled an older version and nothing works. Any advice?

    • screamingfrog 3 years ago

      Hi Brent,

      You’re leaving a comment on a post that’s over a year old and isn’t even the latest version, rather than just asking us via support?

      So, my advice would be – Contact us via support for help! Or comments like this will often be completely missed.
