How Do I List All Of The URL’s I Have indexed In Google?
I was asked the other day, ‘Nigel, how do I make a list of all the URL’s I am ranking for?’ so I set about finding out. This is with great thanks to Chirs Ainsworth who I will link to below.
The first thing you have to do is to get Google to list all of the URLs in one go. As you know usually when you do a search in Google in gives you the top 10 results. I say ‘usually’ because sometimes I only get 6 or 8, so Google appears to make it’s own mind up just how many you can see in one go. Did you know that you can actually specify how many you wish to see? No? Well here it is:
If you click on the Search Settings once you have completed the search then a window pops up. This will allow you to change the URLs displayed from 10 to 100 search results! who knew? In this way it is much easier to view the 100 results by simply scrolling through the results instead of click next 10, next 10 etc. How many times have you been presented with the ‘I am not a robot’ box, where you have to click on photos of storefronts, cars and traffic lights?! Me? plenty!
Once this is done you can then make the job even easier by increasing this even further. For this we use Ginfinity. Search ‘Ginfinity‘ in Google then add the plugin to chrome. Refresh the browser to get it working for you.
Next perform a simple site search, which is as simple as this:
This will list all of the URLs which your website is ranking for in an infinite scroll.
See how it lists page 2, page 3 etc.
Once you have all of these URLs listed you will need a way of downloading them so they can be analysed. The simple way, of course, is to right click, then save them to an Excel spreadsheet. If you have large sites with a few hundred URLs then you are going to be there a very long time. Far better to use this little trick.
Simply Drag this to your bookmark bar!
This is a shortened search we did on Carousel Project where you could now copy the URLs and drop them into Excel.
Please bear in mind that Google is changing its criteria all the time, but right now this tool works like a dream!
