Well I posted a few days ago about httPulse, all excited about it. I’ve been waiting for a decent index tracking utility for some time, and preferably a free one. So, several days and 1 software upgrade later, I still can’t use httpulse. 🙁
I don’t know why exactly, and I’ve been in contact with the developers about this. Sounds like a few people just have problems with it crashing, and they aren’t sure why yet. I have volunteered my testing abilities to help them solve it, so hopefully they take me up on it as I really would like there to be a decent free utility out there for checking one’s domain indexing. Plus, I wrote a script already that automates the data entry of large lists of domains. Without it you have to enter them one by one, and if you have anything more than about 10 domains that’ll drive you crazy!
So anyway… for the moment, I’m using Indexing Tracker and am quite impressed. VERY thorough, in addition to checking your indexing it will actually spider your site(s) for you in bulk and tell you EXACTLY what pages have not been indexed! Quite impressive, though the spidering can take a LONG time if you have large sites. I suggest running it on a secondary computer and just let it go for however long it takes.
So, it’s not free, but if you have a bit more money to spend and really do NEED a tool for this sort of tracking (and really, how do you know what you’re doing if you don’t know your indexing??) then at the moment I suggest looking at Indexing Tracker.
Still, I hope httPulse is reliable for me soon… it’s not as fancy, but I like free! 😀
