Settings – authentication

Modified on Mon, 09 Oct 2023 at 07:42 PM

Netpeak Spider allows performing SEO-audit of a website at the development stage and crawling it before search engine robots do.

The ‘Authentication‘ allows getting access to websites secured by basic authentication. It is when a username and a password are included as a part of HTTP GET-request. 


Follow these steps to use this feature:

  1. Go to the ‘Authentication‘ tab in the program settings.
  2. Tick the ‘Use basic authentication‘ checkbox to activate ‘Login‘ and ‘Password‘ fields. Click on the ‘OK’ button.
  3. Enter a website address into the corresponding field and start crawling using the ‘Start‘ button.       

Netpeak Spider also supports URL links with the format, which may be useful when it is necessary to crawl a list of URLs from different websites.
