This Blog is not active anymore, further posts will be available on my company website. Read new posts here

The RC is already removed from the version info, a release is around the corner! A perfect time to talk about validating pages using SEO Checker. To validate a site, or a portion of a site for SEO issues, open SEO Checker and select the Validate Pages option from the menu. This will show the following screen. By default the root is selected, if you want to validate a portion of a site specify the start location. When the include children is checked all published children will be validated also. When you hit start the pages will be added to the validation queue.

 validate pages

Besides this manual process, pages will be added to the validation queue when they are published also. Only published pages having a template assigned will be validated!

Validation queue

Pages will not be validated immediately, instead they will be added to the validation queue. Validation occurs on the background so you will not have to wait until the validation process is finished. When all pages are validated the result will be available in the Validation issues overview.

Validation issues

This overview will show all issues found when validating the page. The documentation will contain a full list of validation when it’s released. When an issue contains the description “Template issue” it means that the issue is found in the template. A template issue is only reported once for every template instead of reported on every document that uses the template.

ValidationIssues-markedwithoptions

Options:

  1. When selected warnings will included in the overview.
  2. When selected errors will included in the overview.
  3. When a period is selected solved items since the selected period are also displayed in the overview. Solved issues are displayed in strikethrough. In the example above the metadata issues are solved.
  4. Opens the document in a popup
  5. Opens the template assigned to the document in a popup. This option will only be available for Users that have access
  6. Deletes the issue from the overview, or adds the item to the ignore list.

Delete and ignore issues

Using the delete button in the various overviews you can delete an issue from the overview. This will show the following dialog.

When you hit “delete” it will just remove the item from the overview. Next time validation occurs the issue will be reported again. When you check the “Ignore this issue next time” checkbox the item will be added to the ignore list and the issue will not be reported again next time validation occurs. Use the Ignore list overviews to see which items are ignored.
