What does a particular URL look like on the desktop and on mobile? And how the search engines view the URL? You can find out by visiting the URL and checking for yourself, or you can use Marketing Miner for that.

If you don’t want to analyze URLs one by one because you have a larger dataset of URLs available, you can put all of these URLs into the Miner Screenshot. Then you will get all the screenshots in one final report, which you can download in the PDF version as well.

From 17.12.2021 we ended the support of Screenshot (both Domain and URL) miner.

In practice

Miner Screenshot might help you:

  • When you make any changes to your site. Analysis of screenshots will help you to discover forgotten visual errors.
  • When analyzing the competition. If you analyze a larger number of pages and want to see how specific URLs from competition appear on the desktop and mobile versions.
  • When doing link prospecting, you usually have a larger dataset of websites that you need to get a quick overview of what they look like. The PDF version of the screenshots can be useful when you will need to differentiate between individual pages.

Import data

Get started by clicking on Create report button and specifying Domains or URLs at the input. Then write or copy the dataset of the domains or URLs to which you want to get screenshots for your desktop and mobile version.

Screenshot report - insert data

If you need to analyze all pages on the web and have a sitemap available, you can insert its link into the tool. To do so, click on the Import From URL section in the left sidebar.

For a report to be easily identifiable, it is good to name it. Simply click into Your Report Name field.

Then click on the flag to select the country for which you want to get the data and finish by clicking on Next Step.
