SEO Tool Suite

Recluse is a suite of SEO tools for discovering and investigating common SEO issues across a domain.

  • SEO Crawler crawls a site and saves the results to the db.
  • SEO Linter checks HTML against common SEO rules.
  • SEO Reporter outputs the crawl reports in various formats.
  • SEO Dashboard displays the crawl data for the browser.

SEO Crawler

SEO Crawler takes a given url and continues to crawl the internal links on the site until it can't find new urls to crawl. The crawler saves common request information like status code and content type. It also runs the SEO Linter to check for common SEO issues. The results of a crawl are saved to a database for later investigation and a JUnit report is saved to the file system. The idea is to catch basic, common errors across a whole site and allow for investigation into edge cases.

Instructions

> pip install -r requirements.txt
> cat schema.sql | mysql -uusername -p
> cp testurls.example testurls
> cp config.yaml.example config.yaml
> ./seocrawler.py http://fashionista.com

Instructions

> pip install -r requirements.txt
> curl --silent http://fashionista.com?__escaped_fragment__= | python seolinter/__init__.py

Instructions

> pip install -r requirements.txt
# python seoreporter/__init__.py [type] [format] [run_id]
> python seoreporter/__init__.py build junit d09b8571-5c8a-42ff-8ab7-c38f4f8871c4

SEO Dashboard

The SEO Dashboard presents a table of crawl data as a table viewable in the browser.

Instructions
