What you will learn

Our one-day training workshop will help you make the very most of the Screaming Frog SEO Spider. If you want to use the SEO Spider to its full potential, and know you’ve only just scratched the surface, then this is the training course for you.

It’s aimed at intermediate-level users, with a foundational understanding of both SEO and the SEO Spider, that have an interest in developing their knowledge further.

You’ll master how to set up the tool, configure it for a variety of scenarios and types of websites and gain a comprehensive understanding of the breadth of options, data and reporting available. You’ll learn how to get the data you need and uncover lesser-known features.

You’ll be taught how to approach more advanced scenarios, such as crawling development sites, JavaScript frameworks, large, complex ecommerce websites, and integrating external data from Google Analytics and Search Console for further insight.

You’ll cover common crawling issues, and practical ways you can easily self-diagnose, debug and overcome them when performing technical SEO audits.

After completing the training, you will be able to confidently crawl complex websites, configure the SEO Spider to get the data you need, and introduce new methods and ideas into your SEO auditing.
