Segmentation and Analytics

5. Unique data segmentation feature

Segmentation is a powerful feature that has lots of use in the program and helps analyze data from a completely different angle. When crawling is finished, you can change data view in the program limiting it to a particular segment (same as segmentation in Google Analytics).

Segments affect all reports in the program, and you can either set them manually or use any available filter as a segment: by any parameter, any number of conditions, using the AND / OR logic and even regular expressions.

6. Complex site structure analysis

‘Site structure’ — is a special report that helps see how the site is built based on URL segments. You will get the statistics on URL number and percentage on every level, and by clicking on them you can filter the table to a certain area of the website for further analysis. It grants endless opportunity for insights in conjunction with segmentation feature.

Advanced analytics doesn’t strike your fancy? Ok, we’ve warmed up, now let’s get serious

Functionatily and Usability

8. Crawling settings management

In Netpeak Spider, you can enable and disable crawling of specific parameters in a single interface to focus on the most important ones. Such customization allows speeding up crawling, lowering RAM and processor resource consumption: if the site is huge, you can crawl it checking only the parameters you need.

There is a handy search by parameters in a sidebar (since there are lots of them). You can analyze all of the parameters, and then disable some of them with the function 'Sync the table with selected parameters' to leave only the most needed ones.

9. Advanced results table

The table in Netpeak Spider is the best on the market and is highly optimized for working with heavy data (there is a rumor that it’s optimized even better that Excel ).

You can use a wide variety of functions: data sorting and grouping, quick search, filtering, numerous options to adjust columns, highlighting issues depending on their severity, hints, interactive parameter values, advanced context menu, hot keys, etc. The program also automatically saves all the table settings and applies them after restart.

10. URLs skipped while crawling

If some pages weren’t found while crawling, there is a special table in a program that shows which URLs were skipped and why: due to selected crawling settings, or because of crawling and indexing instructions.

Take a look at this table to double-check if everything is in order, and pause the crawling to change the settings if needed.

11. Templates for settings, parameters, filters, and segments

If you like to adjust everything to your liking, we’ve got excellent news for you: Netpeak Spider allows saving your own templates for crawling settings, paramaters, filters, and segments to use them afterwards. We also got you covered with pre-set default templates.

Built-In Tools

12. Export of Search Queries from Google Search Console PRO

In Netpeak Spider you can analyze data from GSC in the format ‘URL – search query – major metrics (impressions, clicks, CTR, average position)’, since in GSC itself, you’re confined only to two options: analyze main indicators by URL, or by search queries.

This feature allows to quickly export absolutely all queries URL ranks for, optimize meta tags, assess your website performance, and look for low hanging fruits of your website optimization.

13. Internal PageRank Calculation

Internal PageRank calculation tool will help you perform a thorough analysis of the internal linking and get deep insights into the project: how link weight is distributed across the site and where it concentrates; what unimportant pages get extra link weight; what pages are 'dead ends' and simply ‘burn’ incoming link weight.

14. Source Code and HTTP Headers Analysis

You don’t have to open a page in a browser to quickly analyze its source code – just use the built-in tool in Netpeak Spider. It allows checking HTTP request and response headers of any URL, data on redirects, GET parameters in URL, and all extracted text without the HTML code, which is especially useful for text analysis.

Working with Heavy Data and Export

16. Optimal RAM Consumption

We’ve conducted research featuring our main competitor where we crawled 100,000 pages of theguardian.com using Netpeak Spider and Screaming Frog SEO Spider (SFSS, version 13.2) with the same settings (with JS rendering enabled and disabled). With the enabled JavaScript rendering, Netpeak Spider uses 5 times less RAM compared to SFSS, and without JS rendering – 3 times less RAM.

By the way, you don't have to select the data storage mode manually: we use our internal database by default – it is designed not to affect crawling speed at all.

17. Quick Export of Any Data

With a special export menu, in just one click you can export either any particular report or all the available reports at once, and even a set of specific reports to assign a task to a developer or send to your clients.

Data is exported in the same form as it’s shown in the results table: including sorting, grouping, columns width and order. Formats available: CSV, XLSX, and PDF (with graphs and diagrams). And the best thing is that you can export the reports directly to Google Drive and work on the online with you teammates.

18. Internal Database

Netpeak Spider's internal database is built to work with huge amounts of URLs: you don't have to export the results to external services (e.g. Excel or Google Spreadsheets) – you can analyze any parameter (links, images, redirects, canonical URLs, H1-H6 headings) for one URL or numerous ones right in the program.

19. Integration with Google Drive / Sheets PRO

This integration allows you to quickly export reports straight to Google Sheets without any limits and share them with your colleagues in a few clicks. Likewise, the PDF reports: they're immediately exported to Google Drive, so it means that the only thing you have to do is get a shareable link and send it to a client or manager.
