What is a server log analysis?

Server log analysis is a process of inspecting your server’s log file that records information on all requests performed by users’ browsers or search engine crawlers.

The log file contains accurate data on how users and bots interact with your site and can be a base for important discoveries that will improve your SEO.

How does a server log analysis improve your SEO?

Thanks to a server log analysis, you’ll find out the following:

  • Which folders and pages are most popular among users and crawlers, so it’s worth investing in their content,
  • How often Googlebot or other search engine crawlers visit your website, and if your website needs crawl budget optimization,
  • If your mobile pages are more important to crawlers than desktop pages, so it’s worth investing in mobile SEO services,
  • If your server has any bandwidth problems that may slow down the crawling of your website. 

These valuable data can help you plan and strategize your growth. 

The bigger your website is, the harder your server’s work gets. It’s essential to check it regularly for potential dangers to your visibility.
