Audit your website's technical foundation with ContentKing

  • November 16, 2017

Content: your website's lifeline and the reason it exists in the first place.

That said, content can't survive on its own—it needs help.

If your website's technical foundation (the platform) is not up to par, even the best content in the world is not going to save you.
That's why today we're launching the biggest extension to our auditing suite so far:

Platform auditing

Starting today you'll find a new screen called Platform in the app. It has three sections:

Domain auditing

Here you'll find insights and issues related to your domain: Canonical domain, domain redirects, HTTPS use, SSL certificate validity and more.

XML Sitemap auditing

Everything related to your XML sitemaps (opens in a new tab) goes here, including how many URLs they contain, whether they have syntax or content errors, and much, much more.

Robots.txt auditing

Is it referencing the XML sitemaps? Are all directives valid? Are non-canonical variants getting redirected? Virtually anything that can go wrong with robots.txt (opens in a new tab) is monitored here.

Impact on website health

The Platform-screen contains its own health metric, aptly named "Platform health".

In addition, we also now factor platform health into your overall website health score. So if you see a slight change in your website's health, don't worry—that's just a result of us adding platform health to the mix.
