  • Query password protected sites?

    We have an internal content site that I'd like to check with the tool before publishing to an internet facing site.  The internal site is password protected with Windows Integrated login. (It's Sharepoint).   I'd say that isn't any different than a traditional site hosted on IIS.

    Any plans to support this type of authentication or is anonymous site the only option (which makes sense in most cases).

    I second this request... as a strictly SEO tool, it doesn't make a lot of sense to support authentication, but many of the reports available in this tool would also be useful for internal sites (e.g., broken links, invalid markup, ability to see identify linking pages, etc.).  We're also running SharePoint with integrated auth.

    We are considering to support the authentication in a next release.

    Thanks for the feedbacks that we can use this for intranet web site as well not only for the internet web site.
