How to find broken images?

Marcin Pastuszek

Seodity has two ways to find broken images. Find URLs (webpages) with broken images and by finding direct broken image URLs.

It depends on you what way do you use it. I will show you these two ways below.

1. First of all, you have to make an on-site analysis of your website.

Seodity will analyze the project with more than 100 SEO parameters. Our crawler will check every webpage for issues. Also, for each problem, you will find detailed instructions on how to solve it.

1.1 Add new project.

It's simple and easy, just three steps. If you have to make only an on-site analysis, you can skip keywords and competitors' steps (you can back to this whenever you need to).
