Highlight links internal

Q: Is Browseo's output exactly what search engines like Google and Bing see?

A: Search engines don't really "see" pages the way humans do. They crawl pages and extract information from them. Since search engines care mainly about text on a page, Browseo helps you to focus on what is important to them: the actual content. Layout and styles of a page can often give a wrong impression of a page's actual value in terms of content.

Q: What are some of Browseo's unique features?

A: Browseo's unique value lies in its consolidation of important information in a single tool that is easy to use and free for all. While browsing any web page, you can display certain details about the page and its content, such as server resonse codes, redirects, contents of headings or meta information. Additionally, you can highlight three types of links separately: internal links (pointing to pages on the same domain), external links and links containing the rel="nofollow" attribute. So Browseo provides a lot of additional, useful data at a glance.

Q: What is the difference to text browsers such as Lynx?

A: While Browseo removes styles and scripts and could thus be seen as a text browser, it retains some of the details that Lynx doesn't. It is also a bit more user friendly since you navigate web pages like you're used to: with your mouse!

    Great work guys! Helps to boil down a site what search engines see, and is easy to use. Keep it up!

      Your clients don’t need Chrome with a certain plugin to get a quick look at their site in this “SEO View”. Just give em a link to browseo.net and tell them to enter their site. You don’t need to take screenshots and email them.

      But one thing I also think this does, is it lowers the barrier to entry especially for non-techy or less geeky folks to have an alternative view at their website. The everyday blogger, or small local business owner, or heck even corporate people who simply don’t have the time or desire really to download all sorts of plugins. You just tell them; go to browseo, plug in your site name and even as a layman you can understand certain things that just won’t look right.

      Two things:

      (1) Your contact form is not working.
      (2) I love your spider simulator tool, but it’s also not working. When I enter a URL and press enter, nothing changes on the screen. No error message, but no results either.

      Thought you’d want to know and hopefully, fix it.

    Hi I’m seeing a bunch of odd characters when I look at a website through browseo. I’ve tested this on different browsers and devices to check it isn’t a font issue on a single device. Can you have a look and guide me on this. The url is: https://www.staplehurstdentalpractice.co.uk/invisalign-braces-in-kent/
