Frequently Asked Questions

Siteliner is a new free service provided by the creators of Copyscape, the web's most popular search engine for plagiarism and duplicate content. Copyscape checks for duplicate content between a single page and the entire web, but we received many requests for a tool that can detect duplicate content within one website only. And so Siteliner was born. While we were at it, we added a few more features – please let us know what else you'd like to see in Siteliner.

How does Siteliner work?

Simply enter your domain name, and Siteliner begins crawling your site by following internal links. It rapidly retrieves and analyzes your content, generating a live report as the crawl proceeds. For more information on how to interpret Siteliner results, please see the Siteliner Guide.

Why doesn't Siteliner analyze my whole site?

The free Siteliner service checks the 250 most prominent pages on your website, based on internal link structure. The Siteliner Premium service lets you analyze up to 25,000 pages, and allows you to save and review previous results. Signing up for Siteliner Premium is free.

How can I check my site again now?

The free Siteliner service allows each site to be checked once every 30 days. For more frequent checks, the Siteliner Premium service places no limits as to how often you check your site, and can check up to 25,000 pages. Signing up for Siteliner Premium is free.

How much does Siteliner Premium cost?

Each page scanned costs only 1c. Premium credits are purchased in advance by credit card or PayPal and can be bought as and when they are required. Signing up for Siteliner Premium is free.

What does “Page Power” mean?

For each page in a Siteliner report, the Page Power value represents how prominently that page is linked from other prominent pages in your site. The values are normalized to a maximum of 100.

How quickly does Siteliner crawl my site?

To ensure that it does not overload your site, Siteliner only requests 4 pages at any one time. This load is similar to that of a regular web browser retrieving a web page with embedded images, style sheets and scripts. For more information, please read about the Siteliner bot.

What SEO-related standards does Siteliner support?

Siteliner is designed to interpret your website in a similar way to search engine spiders. It understands the following SEO-related standards:

How do I use Siteliner for pages that require a login?

What if I have forgotten my username or password?

When you log in, click on 'I forgot my username or password' and enter your username or email address. A password reset link will be emailed to you, with instructions on how to proceed.

How do I change my password or email address?

Log in to your account, then click on 'User Settings' in the 'Siteliner Premium' menu. You can then click on 'Change Password' to change your password. You can also type in a new email address in the area provided, and click 'Save Changes'.
