Vovsoft SEO Checker can scan websites and allows you to find broken links, gather on-page SEO data, distinguish internal and external links, classify dofollow and nofollow links, and more.

To speed up scanning and limit it to certain pages, you can specify URLs you want to ignore. Make sure you enable the "Show Options" checkbox next to the "Check" button. It will display some options, including the "Ignore URLs" list. You can enter the URLs you want to ignore to this list one by one, or better still, you can use masks.

SEO Checker Ignore URLs


How to use masks

A valid mask consists of literal characters, wildcards, and sets.

Each literal character must match a single character in the string. The comparison to literal characters is case-insensitive.

Wildcards are asterisks (*) or question marks (?). An asterisk matches any number of characters. A question mark matches a single arbitrary character.

Each set begins with an opening bracket ([) and ends with a closing bracket (]). Between the brackets are the elements of the set. Each element is a literal character or a range. Ranges are specified by an initial value, a dash (-), and a final value. Do not use spaces or commas to separate the elements of the set. A set must match a single character in the string. The character matches the set if it is the same as one of the literal characters in the set, or if it is in one of the ranges in the set. A character is in a range if it matches the initial value, the final value, or falls between the two values. All comparisons are case-insensitive. If the first character after the opening bracket of a set is an exclamation point (!), then the set matches any character that is not in the set.
