    Hi Friends,
    SEO Tools like Screaming Frog can check your website for many things. Some of the main elements a tool like this checks for is:

    Page Titles - Is there one? Is it unique? Is it long enough, but not too long?

    Page Descriptions - Is there one? Is it unique? Is it long enough, but not too long?

    Images - Are they compressed? Do they have alt tags?

    Links - Are they broken? Are they follow/nofollow? What redirects are there?

    URLs - Are they free from characters? Are they not too long?

    H1 / H2 - Do all pages have heading tags? Are they unique? Are they not to long?

    Plus many other things.

    The Screaming Frog SEO Spider is a website crawler, that allows you to crawl websites' URLs and fetch key elements to analyse and audit technical and onsite SEO.

    Screaming Frog has its own free version, but that version is limited in functionality. You can crawl your site for broken links and link errors, page titles and meta data, your meta robots directives, your hreflang attributes, and it can find duplicate content. It can also generate an XML sitemap for you.
