How to re-crawl a site, page or group

By Guðrún Unnur Gústafsdóttir

While Siteimprove crawls your site on a set schedule (typically every 5 days), you may wish to start another crawl outside of this schedule. There is no additional charge incurred for doing so. 

 
 It is possible initiate a crawl at the following levels:
  • A single page
  • A group of pages
  • An entire site
Single page re-check
 
If you have just updated a particular page and would like to re-check the page for issues, you can do so using the "Single page re-check" icon found at the top of each page report:

Results typically take a minute to return. The screen will refresh automatically once completed.

Note: Reports and notifications are not sent once a single page check completes
 
Re-crawl a group

1. Select the group you would like to re-crawl
2. Click QA Overview > Summary on the left hand menu
3. Click the Re-Crawl group button in the bottom right of the Dashboard
