  • You can monitor the sample over time and see which URLs got deindexed,

  • You can get additional information about a given URL, such as word count, title tags, and more.
What’s the accuracy of the tool?

If you want to double-check the unindexed URLs, analyze them using the URL Inspection Tool in Google Search Console.

What user agents does ZipTie use?

The default user agent used by ZIpTie is “<USER AGENT>”. You can specify a custom user agent while creating or editing a Website.

Will ZipTie give me any additional information about my URLs apart from indexing stats? If so, what specific details will it provide?

Yes! 

We present additional information about the URLs, such as: 

  • Number of words (total number of words on a given page, excluding HTML markup and comments) 
  • H1 tags,
  • Title tags,
  • Sitemaps – which sitemap the URL has been found in.
Does ZipTie provide technical SEO services? What should I do if I realize that many of my pages are not indexed?

ZipTie is the tool used for diagnosing indexing issues.

Using ZipTie

What is a Sitemap check?
  • ZipTie will check which URLs in the sitemaps you provided, aren’t indexed in Google. ZipTie will check all URLs in sitemaps. There is one exception though: if you limit the number of URLs, we will choose URLs randomly to fit into the limits. 

Example: let’s assume there are 10k URLs in your sitemaps. 

  • if you set limit to 10k we will check all URLs
  • if you set limit to 1k, we will choose 1k randomly
  • if you set limit to 100k we will check all URLs and return 90k surplus credits 

Please note: our checker will visit all listed pages to ensure they are eligible for indexing and will extract additional information (such as Title tag, number of words, etc). 

What is a URL check?

ZipTie will check which pages from your list of URLs aren’t indexed in Google. 

Note: our checker will visit all listed pages to ensure they are eligible for indexing and extract additional information (such as Title tag, number of words, etc).

What is a Crawl check?
  • ZipTie will crawl your website, starting with the homepage, until it reaches the selected URL limit. The URLs found are then checked.  
What is Sample(/Project) monitoring?
  • You can enable sample monitoring to schedule automatic checks with a given frequency, for example every 7 days. Credits will be used at the beginning of every check. Monitoring will let you track indexing over time.
What does the “Requests per second” field do?
  • In this field you can specify how many times per second ZipTie will send requests to your website. Higher values mean faster checking and denser traffic on your site during the check. The default rate is 4 requests per second. 
Is there a limit on how many domains (including competing websites) I can analyze?

There is no limit – you can check as many domains as you want.

You are only limited to the number of URLs in your subscription.

Is there a limit for how many URLs I can analyze with ZipTie?

The Dashboard will run analyses of up to 1 million URLs. If the limit isn’t enough for you, please contact our support.

Note: The URL list check is limited to ~25000 URLs, the rest of the reports aren’t limited.

How long will I have to wait for the indexing analysis?

The time it will take for you to get the analysis data heavily depends on ZipTie’s current queue and how fast your server responds.

Generally, checks of up to 1000 URLs should be ready after between 5 minutes and 1 hour.

I want to check the indexing status of product and blog pages separately. How can I do it?

The easiest way to accomplish this is to create two separate projects:

  1. One for blog pages, and
  2. One for product pages.
I have 1 million URLs on my website. What will happen when I limit the check to 100k URLs?
  • If you choose the Sitemap option, we will analyze 100k URLs randomly out of all the sitemaps,
  • If you choose the Crawl option, we will run a crawl and stop it when we reach 100k URLs.

Credits

How do credits work?
  • Every 1 credit used means 1 URL checked with ZipTie. 
  • If fewer URLs are found than specified, the surplus credits will be returned to your account after the check is finished
Which will be used for my check - subscription credits or extra credits?

Subscription credits are always used first. If you don’t have enough subscription credits, the remaining amount will be taken from your extra credits.

What’s the difference between subscription credits and extra credits?
  • Subscription credits reset every month at the beginning of your billing period. Unused subscriptions credits are not carried over to the next billing period.
  • Extra credits can be purchased at any time. They are lifetime.
