Scrutiny version 8 released

Some serious 'under the hood' improvements have been made in Scrutiny version 8. Benefits include more efficient scanning of your website and more data collected.

we've invested a lot of time in something that isn't a killer new feature, but will make things run more smoothly, efficiently and reliably, and give you more information.

There have been a number of requests to add more information about the properties of a link , eg hreflang and more of the 'rel' attributes. HTML5 allows loads of allowable values in the 'rel' and if the one you want doesn't have its own yes/no column in the new apps then you can view the entire rel attribute. You can switch these columns on in any of the link tables as well as the one in the link inspector.

The information displayed in Scrutiny's SEO table will include more data about the pages, notably og: and twitter card meta data which is important to a lot of users.




Redirect information wasn't stored permanently, only the start and end of a redirect chain (the majority are a single step. But if there is more than one redirect, you'll want to know all the in-between details)

It's becoming increasingly necessary to apply some limits on the rate of the requests that Integrity / Scrutiny make.

Your server may keep responding no matter how hard you hit it. That's great; turn up those threads and watch Integrity / Scrutiny go through your site like a dose of salts.

If you do need to limit the scan, you'll no longer have to turn down the threads and use trial and error with the delay field. You'll be able to simply enter a maximum number of requests per minute, while still using multiple threads for efficiency.
