    That's confusing considering you have web/dev & SEO links in your sig.

    The whole point of Screaming Frog is researching on-page SEO.

      Does the signature mean that I need to know everything with just a click? Can't I learn or if I don't know about something can't i ask other members? Is this what you call discussion forum Yukon?

    Well, I sometimes used screaming frog and following things that are really helpful than other tools

    1. You can extract all pages title, meta desc. and keywords
    2. Missing Alt tag images
    3. 404 URLs as well as 302 (trace out temporary redirection)
    4. Extract Missing H1 tags
    5. Extract duplicate title, desc. and keywords

    Good luck

      Hi eriiko,

      What exactly does this screaming frog do, and what specialties does this tool have when compared to Google?

    I have used it and found it good for finding missing and duplicate on-page elements and meta data. There are of course other similar tools available.

    screaming frog is just a spider that you can run on your computer. Its helpful to find all the page status (404, 301,302 etc) and also gather all data about meta info - like titles, descriptions etc - its a helpful place to start if you are doing on-page stuff - it also checks H1, H2 and other on-page elements.

    You might also use it to find duplacate content, as well as the general indexing structure of the site, ive used it before and found that a clients entire admin was indexed and vulnerable - so gave a chance to fix that and edit robots.txt too.

    In summary: screaming frog - helpful to crawl and make on-page checks for the whole site in 1 go.

    end of the day its waht you do with this info after hope it helps!
