Kan du se, hvad Google henter?

We’ve had two issues this month where our customers’ sites were working perfectly for the visitor but Google Search Console was reporting errors. In one case, the client was attempting to write some of the content utilizing Javascript. In the other case, we identified that the hosting another client was using was redirecting visitors correctly… but not the Googlebot. As a result, Webmasters was continuing to generate 404 errors instead of following the redirect that we’d implemented.

Googlebot is Google’s web crawling bot (sometimes also called a “spider”). Crawling is the process by which Googlebot discovers new and updated pages to be added to the Google index. We use a huge set of computers to fetch (or “crawl”) billions of pages on the web. Googlebot uses an algorithmic process: computer programs determine which sites to crawl, how often, and how many pages to fetch from each site. From Google: Googlebot

Google henter, gennemgår og fanger dit sideindhold forskelligt fra en browser. Mens Google kan kravle scripting, det gør det ikke mean that it will always be successful. And just because you test a redirect in your browser and it works, doesn’t mean that the Googlebot is properly redirecting that traffic. It took some dialogue between our team and the hosting company before we figured out what they were doing… and key to finding out was using the Hent som Google værktøj i Webmastere.

hent som google

Værktøjet Hent som Google giver dig mulighed for at indtaste en sti på dit websted, se om Google var i stand til at gennemgå det eller ikke, og faktisk se det gennemgåede indhold, som Google gør. For vores første klient kunne vi vise, at Google ikke læste scriptet, som de havde håbet. For vores anden klient var vi i stand til at bruge en anden metode til at omdirigere Googlebot.

Hvis du ser Crawlfejl inden for Webmasters (i afsnittet Sundhed) skal du bruge Fetch as Google til at teste dine omdirigeringer og se det indhold, som Google henter.
